Planning and investing in the land transport system are key roles in meeting our responsibility as set out by government in the Land Transport Management Act.
The Transport Agency is working closely with the sector to ensure the 2015–18 National Land Transport Programme (NLTP) delivers the best outcomes it can to support a thriving New Zealand.
Planning integrated transport systems is a complex task. We must consider the drivers for economic growth, the wellbeing of communities and the environment. It must deliver effective, efficient and enduring transport solutions, and extract the best performance from existing infrastructure.
On 5 May 2016, the Government announced its electric vehicle uptake package, a cross-government programme of work that aims to accelerate the uptake of electric vehicles in New Zealand to reach 64,000 vehicles by 2021.
Engaging with the public is an integral part of our business. It’s part of being a good corporate citizen.
In our planning, we work to build connections with local networks and maintain the functioning of the state highway.
Local roads – the roads administered by city and district councils – make up about 80,000 kilometres (88%) of all New Zealand’s roads.
Urban design is design that seeks to create desirable places for people to live, work and play. It involves the design and placement of buildings, roads, rail, open spaces, towns and cities.
As part of creating a successful multi-modal transport system we are working with our partners to offer a safer, more accessible and attractive network for cycling so that more Kiwis can choose to get about by bike.
Good public transport network planning of services and infrastructure that meet passenger needs is critical to delivering the optimal transport solutions and outcomes.
Integrated planning is about connecting transport planning, urban development and land use to encourage coordination and make the best use of resources.
