The National Land Transport Programme (NLTP) contains all the land transport activities, such as public transport services and road construction and maintenance, which are expected to receive funding from Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency. Waka Kotahi is responsible for allocating funding to land transport.
The 2008/09 NLTP sets out the significant transport issues facing land transport and lists the transport activities that have been given funding from the National Land Transport Fund and also those that may be funded during 2008/09. It sets out forecasts of anticipated expenditure and revenue over 10 years.
Each year Land Transport NZ commissions and funds innovative research that contributes towards making New Zealand's land transport system more integrated, safer, more responsive and sustainable.
The education and training components of the RET programme are a collection of activities from a range of other programmes, along with some new initiatives to address the wider objectives of the NZTS. These activities include national advertising on land transport related issues, national promotion of walking and cycling, nationally managed land transport education and training, and support for land transport related academic programmes. Total funding for all components of the RET programme for 2008/09 is $27.60 million.
Individually and collectively, the activities funded through this programme contribute to the purpose and objectives of the Land Transport Management Act 2003 and to Land Transport NZ’s objective of contributing to a safe, integrated, responsive and sustainable land transport system. Further detail about the programme and the activities funded for the 2008/09 year is contained in the Research Education and Training section of this NLTP.
