Important notice

The NZ Transport Agency is implementing business case process improvements. The changes are designed to improve the clarity and consistency of our investment decision-making, and to reduce the time and costs taken to make decisions and deliver outcomes.

From 30 April 2019, the Transport Agency have introduced new Point of Entry (PoE) guidance to ensure future and in-progress business cases are ‘right-sized’ to local context and risks.

The contents of the Point of Entry page have been updated with the new guidance and expectations the Transport Agency has regarding the investment decision-making process and the decision maker around developing a new business case. Further updates will be made over the next few months.


The Point of Entry information that you would expect to find on this Highways Information Portal page is now transitioning to the overall NZ Transport Agency business case guidance. 

Access the updated Point of Entry information pages. 

Learning modules

There are online learning modules available to our partner organisations. To request access to the modules, email with your name, title, organisation and manager’s name.

The point of entry course includes:

  • Point of entry essentials
