Wellington Regional Land Transport Plan 2015
The Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP) is our blueprint for a transport network that will keep the Wellington region vibrant, on the move and enable it to grow and meet future needs.
The RLTP 2015 sets out the strategic direction for land transport in the Wellington region over the next 10-30 years.
It also includes a programme of all the land transport activities in the region that we need funding for over the next six years between 2015 and 2021.
Bids for funding are considered by the NZ Transport Agency for inclusion in the National Land Transport Programme.
We have recently completed a mid-term review of the 2015 RLTP, which updated the programme of land transport activities for the period between 2018 and 2021.
The review concluded that the strategic direction of the RLTP 2015 remains fit for purpose, and identified public transport, resilience and walking and cycling as key areas of focus over the next three years.
The updated programme of land transport activities has been prepared to align with the 2018 Government Policy Statement on Land Transport and will feed into the National Land Transport Programme 2018-21 (NLTP).
The updated programme reflects a shift in investment priorities, with more emphasis on public transport, resilience and walking and cycling. Railway track improvements have also been included in the programme for the first time as these can now be funded through the NLTP, under the new Government Policy Statement. There is also a shift in state highway investment to focus on safety improvements to reflect the government’s priorities.
Legislation allows the RLTP to be varied from time to time between official reviews every three years.
