What is the Regional Land Transport Plan?
The Regional Land Transport Plan combines the thinking from all the Councils in the region into a single strategic document for land transport investment. The Plan is the way the Region seeks central government funding for activities ranging from road safety, to walking and cycling, to public transport and road improvements. It is a requirement under the Land Transport Management Act 2003.
This isn’t a guaranteed programme - it is our combined ‘what we want to do’ list with the final say on how funds are allocated determined by the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA). Funding decisions will be published by the NZTA in the National Land Transport Programme in August 2018. The Plan sets out the Region’s preferred approach to investment - prioritising integrated planning, demand management, and network optimisation approaches before investing in expensive new infrastructure, and determining which outcomes are most important to the Region.

Annual Report Card
The RLTP Annual Report Card tracks a range of transport indicators to enable trends to be measured over time, for example, traffic flows, public transport usage, and the amount of freight carried by road and rail.
