The Government commitments are multi-billion-dollar, multi-year programmes that we need to fund and deliver with our co-investment partners through the 2021–24 National Land Transport Programme (NLTP) and successive NLTPs.
Additional Crown contributions to the National Land Transport Fund (NLTF) through funding and by providing Waka Kotahi access to Crown loans would enable good progress to be made on the Auckland Transport Alignment Project (ATAP) and Let’s Get Wellington Moving (LGWM) programmes and key objectives to be achieved during this NLTP.
The Rail Network Investment Programme (RNIP) has been funded in full. Activities in the RNIP had first call on funding from both the Rail Network and Public Transport Infrastructure activity classes.
Road to Zero activities have been funded above the bottom of the activity class, with our investment focused on delivering lower cost speed and safety infrastructure interventions in 2021–24 and progressing planning and design work to be ready to undertake larger projects from 2025 and beyond. This is likely to have an impact on achieving the reduction of deaths and serious injuries being sought through the strategy.
