When preparing the National Land Transport Programme (NLTP), the Transport Agency  assesses all proposed activities against its investment framework to determine if they are eligible for funding and their investment priority.

This assessment includes ensuring that investment in land transport infrastructure and services delivers on the government's desired outcomes and priorities. These are set out in the Government Policy Statement(external link) on Land Transport.

The policies and guidelines which underpin activity development and NLTP investment are available in the Planning and Investment Knowledge Base.
