National Land Transport Fund investment indicators

Maximising return for New Zealand – investing in land transport

To ensure that the NZTA continues to prudently invest National Land Transport Fund (NLTF) funds, in output classes where our approved organisations partners deliver the goods and services, we monitor a range of investment indicators. These indicators help us to tell the story of our investment performance and complement the performance measures contained within the MOFAS output class.
