NZTA secures temporary site for Palmerston North office


The NZ Transport Agency’s Palmerston North office will be based at 56 The Square (the former FMG building), following the evacuation of 43 Ashley Street on 13 June 2019.

Shortly after the evacuation, the Transport Agency contact centre reopened in a temporary space in Palmerston North, with a second office site operational only a few weeks later, however many Palmerston North-based staff have been working from home since the Ashley Street office building was closed.

The Transport Agency made it a priority to find longer-term temporary space for all staff and have now confirmed a lease for 56 The Square. Detailed planning is underway and the project and relocation timeline will be known in the coming weeks.

It will now be the Transport Agency’s longer-term temporary premises while the search continues for a more permanent location.

Further communications around the new premises will be issued in coming weeks.


Plan ahead for a safe, enjoyable journey. Keep up to date with:
