Planning & investing for outcomes

Our role is to give effect to the Government Policy Statement on Land Transport Funding (GPS) (external link) through investing in land transport infrastructure and services that deliver on the government's desired outcomes and priorities. The NZTA's Investment and Revenue Strategy (IRS) provides the framework and direction for this investment.

Our focus is on planning and investing for outcomes with an emphasis on influencing planning, partnering for investment and enhancing investment performance.

We work with stakeholders to deliver safe and optimum transport solutions that best meet the needs of communities both today and in the future. We tailor our involvement to reflect the level of risk associated with any particular investment programme.

The government has articulated its expectations and priorities for the land transport sector in the Government Policy Statement on Land Transport Funding (GPS). The 2012-15 National Land Transport Programme (NLTP) gives effect to the GPS with a $12.28 billion investment over the next three years.
