NLTP Chief Executive, Fergus Gammie advised on 31-08-2018, the 2018-21 National Land Transport Programme (NLTP) was formally launched in Auckland by Transport Minister Phil Twyford and NZ Transport Agency Chair Michael Stiassny.
I’d like to acknowledge the huge effort that’s taken place over the past year across local government to support the development of the NLTP, from the considered feedback you provided on the Transport Agency Investment Proposal through to the work you’ve put into completing your Regional Land Transport Plans and identifying opportunities to deliver the Government’s new transport priorities.
The result of our combined efforts is an NLTP that will create a safer, better connected and more resilient transport system that keeps New Zealand moving. A record investment of $16.9 billion will be made over the next three years, including $12.9 billion from the National Land Transport Fund, $3.4 billion from local government, and $547 million in additional Crown funding to deliver specific programmes.
The 2018-21 NLTP includes a greater focus on delivering one complete transport system that embraces and better joins all travel options including public transport, walking and cycling. Investment will support activities that have strong safety outcomes, provide better access to all forms of transport and make the system more resilient to keep communities, people and businesses connected.
