    In October 2014, the Waka Kotahi Board agreed that the FAR for special purpose roads should remain at current levels for the 2015-18 NLTP, to allow Waka Kotahi and approved organisations to engage and develop individual plans to transition special purpose roads to normal FARs by 2023/24. 

    The following other FARs will apply for each approved organisation at the start of the 2018-21 NLTP. Waka Kotahi and affected approved organisations will engage during the 2018-21 NLTP to agree and implement transition plans on a case by case basis. The FARs for each approved organisation from that point will reflect the transition plan.
