Wellington Regional Land Transport Plan 2015

Wellington Regional Land Transport Plan 2015

Updated 16 May 2018 10:11am

A resilient and reliable transport system that's easy to use matters to all of us.                 

The Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP) is our blueprint for a 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.
