Bay of Plenty Regional Council has formally adopted the Regional Land Transport Plan 2021-2031. The Plan is available to read or download

From March 2023 Te Mahere Waka A Rohe o Toi Moana, the Regional Land Transport Plan is being reviewed to consider changes in the national, regional and local operating environment and in accordance with the Land Transport Management Act (LTMA). The review follows an 18 month formal policy process including development, consultation, implementation and evaluation.

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.

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.

Regional Land Transport Plan – Monitoring Dashboard

The Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP) Monitoring Dashboard provides up-to-date data to illustrate progress against each of the 27 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in the RLTP 2021-31. It replaces the Annual Report Card approach. Work continues on the development of the RLTP Monitoring Dashboard so that, in future, it can present trend data to illustrate progress across time.


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.
