About Te Pae Kaa Kaa

Te Pae Kaa Kaa is the regular update from the Regulatory team within Waka Kotahi.

The name of this publication translates to 'The branch of the tree where the kaa kaa sit'.

It represents kaa kaa sitting together perched on a branch up high in a rātā tree, conversing among the other communities of birds, promoting their song, their identity, their aspirations.

That image embodies the intent of this newsletter to share informative and interesting updates to your organisations in our role as the land transport regulator.
