Have your say

Our intelligent transport systems (ITS) design standards and delivery specifications (S&S) define the requirements for the design, delivery and integration of ITS equipment onto our national transport network.

Feedback we receive on ITS S&S documents ensures they are produced to the highest quality so we can deliver a safer system for New Zealanders and provide certainty, consistency and clarity for people in the transport system and industry partners.

We’re seeking feedback on the documents in 3 batches.
