Government Policy Statement on Land Transport 2018/19 – 2027/28

The Government Policy Statement (GPS) on Land Transport sets out the government’s priorities for expenditure from the National Land Transport Fund over the next 10 years. It sets out how funding is allocated between activities such as road safety policing, state highways, local roads, public transport and other modes of transport. The Government released a draft revised GPS and sought feedback. Details of this draft (and previous Govt Policy Statements) can be found here: https://www.transport.govt.nz/ourwork/keystrategiesandplans/gpsonlandtransportfunding/.

 

The National Committee of Transportation Group NZ prepared a submission on the proposed GPS. A copy of our submission can be found here

The Congestion Question Report

The Congestion Question (TCQ) project is a technical investigation by officials from six government agencies (the Ministry of Transport, Auckland Council (AC), Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency (Waka Kotahi), Auckland Transport (AT), The Treasury and the State Services Commission) to consider whether there is a case for introducing a congestion pricing scheme for Auckland.

The initial investigation can be found here

In May 2021, the National Committee of Transportation Group NZ prepared a submission on the proposals. A copy of our submission can be found here

Setting of Speed Limits Rule 2021

In mid-2021, Waka Kotahi consulted upon a proposed new rule enabling an improved approach to speed management planning on New Zealand roads, called the Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2021.

Speed is a major contributing factor to deaths and serious injuries on New Zealand roads. In the event of a crash, regardless of cause, the speed of impact is the most important determinant of the severity of injuries sustained and the probability of death. More on this can be found here

In June 2021, the Transportation Group National Committee submitted on the proposed rule. Details of the submission can be found here 

Emissions Reduction Plan

In mid-2021, the Ministry for the Environment consulted upon the first emissions reduction plan, which set the direction for climate action for the next 15 years. It also sets us on a pathway to meeting our 2050 net-zero greenhouse gas emissions and biogenic methane targets. It does this by implementing policies and strategies for specific sectors, including transport. More information is available here

In July 2021, the Transportation Group National Committee submitted upon the plan. The submission is available here
