New Zealand Upgrade Programme – Transport

The New Zealand Upgrade Programme (NZUP) will provide growing communities across the country with better travel choices that help people get where they’re going safely.

The programme will also support economic growth, while responding to the impacts of travel on the environment and helping enable housing.

Waka Kotahi and KiwiRail are delivering the Government’s $8.7 billion investment in rail, public transport, walking and cycling as well as safer roads that better connect people and businesses.

The transport improvements are in our main growth areas - Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Manawatu-Whanganui, Wellington, Canterbury and Queenstown - as well as a number of regions.
