Improvements to public transport and state highways, a strong focus on road safety, better customer service and good progress on delivering seven Roads of National Significance projects are among the achievements highlighted in the NZ Transport Agency's annual report for the year ended 30 June 2011, now available online.
NZTA Chief Executive Geoff Dangerfield says the agency’s achievements in 2010/11 demonstrate its focus on creating a safer and more efficient transport system for all New Zealanders.
“We’re working hard to deliver transport solutions for a thriving New Zealand, and this report clearly outlines the steps we’ve taken over the past 12 months to achieve that goal.
“There are many challenges ahead, but I’m proud of the progress the 1,300 people who work for this organisation have made in the past year to make transport better for New Zealanders. Together we’ve achieved 113 of 131 ambitious performance targets, and made good progress on the others.”
During the 12 months covered by the annual report, the NZTA:
"These achievements benefit all New Zealanders, and they would not have been possible without the collaboration and support from our agents and contractors, local authorities, Kiwirail, ports and users – to integrate land use and transport planning in a way that ensures we continue to make well-targeted investments in our national, regional and local land transport systems.”
