The Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP) underpins Te Tauihu o Te Waka-a-Māui (Te Tauihu) or the “Top of the South Island’ region’s road network and transportation planning, as well as the investment priorities over the next six years on both the state highway and local road networks. From a statutory perspective, the RLTP meets the requirements of the Land Transport Management Act 2003 and contributes to the overall aim of the Act.
This RLTP recognises that the transport network we have traditionally relied on may not be appropriate for the future. The key transport issues in Te Tauihu in the next 10 years are:
- vehicle usage growth and its effects on access
- safety on our roads
- the design of our transport system is constraining access for those wanting to use more sustainable modes
- our communities are susceptible to losing access in more frequent weather events
- vehicle usage is affecting our natural environment.
The focus of this RLTP will be on supporting economic and population growth; improving safety; improving travel choice and resilience. The Partners to the RLTP recognize they need to continue to work together to achieve these outcomes.
