May 2017 NLTP Dialogue

Following on from the November NLTP Dialogues, this information has been developed as a starting point for conversations between the Transport Agency’s regional staff and our regional partners (particularly Approved Organisations and Regional Transport Committees) as they work through the process of completing their Regional Land Transport Plan reviews to feed into the development of the 2018-21 National Land Transport Programme (NLTP).

Following on from the November NLTP Dialogues(external link), this information has been developed as a starting point for conversations between the Transport Agency’s regional staff and our regional partners (particularly Approved Organisations and Regional Transport Committees) as they work through the process of completing their Regional Land Transport Plan reviews to feed into the development of the 2018-21 National Land Transport Programme (NLTP).  

The RLTPs, and their primary role as Regional Transport Committee documents, are central to the NLTP development process – and the strategic front end of the current RLTPs have been the basis for much of the content in the draft Long Term Strategic View.

The NLTP is prepared from the Regional Land Transport Plans (RLTPs), which are approved by Regional Councils and incorporate activities proposed by:

  • Approved Organisations
  • the Transport Agency (state highways)
  • the Road Policing Investment Proposal, and
  • nationally delivered programmes proposed by the Transport Agency.

The content in these NLTP Dialogue materials is intended to support the current RLTP Review process as local authorities feed into the NLTP development.

The NZ Transport Agency is charged with giving effect to the Government Priority Statement through the NLTP, whereas Regional Transport Committees and their RLTPs are required to be consistent with the GPS. This is a subtle difference that creates slightly different drivers at times.

Regional Transport Committees and Approved Organisations should aim to identify key issues and opportunities through their RLTP and look to implement activities across the NLTP, through their local road and state highway improvements, road maintenance and renewals programmes, and speed programmes in response to these strategic issues and opportunities.

More information about the overall National Land Transport Programme development process, and can be found on the NZTA website at: www.nzta.govt.nz/2018-21nltp(external link)

The information in these ‘dialogue’ materials replaces the traditional “Investment Signals” and instead aims to support a closer, more interactive series of dialogues between Transport Agency staff and our partners across the sector as we work to develop the 2018-21 NLTP together.

This ‘dialogue’ approach is part of our new way of working together with our partners and stakeholders as we continue to move towards one connected transport system, that is people-centred and created with our partners and stakeholders – to make the most of the opportunities transport can provide for New Zealand.

As with the November NLTP Dialogues, the May NLTP Dialogue materials have been prepared based on feedback our staff have received - both from representatives from the Transport Special Interest Group and also from Approved Organisations directly. The first section of the May NLTP Dialogues provides responses to this feedback.

The second section of the May NLTP Dialogues provides additional information to help inform investment priorities for key activity areas such as walking and cycling, as well as links to a variety of tools and resources that Approved Organisations may find useful as they complete their RLTP Reviews.

If there are any other aspects you would like further information about as part of the process of shaping the 2018-21 NLTP together, please contact us.

Part One: Responding to your feedback

A summary of the key things you told us. We have used these points of feedback as the basis for organising the content that will support our dialogue and investment priorities as we shape the 2018-21 NLTP together.

Part Two: Useful additional information

This section provides additional information that you may find useful as you complete your land transport programmes and RLTP reviews. The information in this section includes updates, advice and investment ‘signals’ from some of the other key activity areas (such as safety, walking and cycling).

Expected content for the next NLTP Dialogues

What we are planning to cover in our August/September 2017 dialogue.
