National Land Transport Programme (NLTP): Manawatu-Whanganui 2009–2012

Manawatu-Whanganui is strategically important in the lower North Island as a transport hub, both for north-south and east-west travel and as a focal point for a wide range of social services for the central North Island. The region includes the first 30 kilometres of the Levin to Wellington Airport corridor identified by the government as a ‘road of national significance’.
