The NZ Transport Agency has completed its prioritisation of remaining funding in four activity classes in the 2018–21 National Land Transport Programme (NLTP). These four activity classes are:
- walking and cycling
- public transport
- local road improvements
- regional improvements.
This process was not a reprioritisation or cut to any already approved funding; it was an allocation of remaining available funding in each of the four activity classes.
Through the process, the projects have been identified in three categories:
- Approved projects – those for which funding has been allocated from the National Land Transport Fund.
- Likely projects – those that are expected to proceed during this NLTP period, subject to a successful business case and funding being available when the application is received.
- Unlikely projects – those that are not expected to be funded during the 2018–21 NLTP period.
Projects not funded in this NLTP period can be put forward for NLTF funding in the 2021–24 Regional Land Transport Plans (RLTP).
It is important to note in the tables in the sections below, the phase of the activity that has approved or otherwise for funding, i.e. detailed business case, pre-implementation, implementation, construction, etc; and that the table relates only to projects considered in the recent prioritisation round for funding in the above four activity classes.
Where councils are not in agreement with decisions in the recent prioritisation process, they have written to the Transport Agency and a review of these issues is underway. Councils are expected to be advised of the outcome of this review in August 2019.
