Waka Kotahi has a critical role in planning and developing the land transport system to keep everyone moving.
We’ve begun to develop a 30-Year Plan that will ensure whānau and communities remain connected; everyone has good access to essential services, such as doctors, hospitals, education facilities and supermarkets, can easily get to work, and that supports economic growth.
The 30-Year Plan will look at how we’ll live and work in the future, as this will determine how we will move. It will look at how the land transport system will need to change and what Waka Kotahi and its partners will to do in response, both to deliver for the future and on the government’s long-term priorities for the transport system.
We’re taking an iterative approach to developing the 30-Year Plan, the first step being the development of the Baseline Network Version. This digital tool provides an overview of the major work planned on inter-regional strategic networks and in our main urban areas, as well as the future focus areas for the state highway network. The Baseline Network Version digitally brings together - for the first time - a range of data and insights that provide a detailed account of our current infrastructure plans which can be used to help plan work on local transport systems.
The next version of the 30-Year Plan, which will include the Baseline Network Version and Arataki, will provide an integrated approach to planning, development and investment in the land transport system. This version is expected to be released in October 2022.
