Wellington Regional Land Transport Plan 2021
The Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP) is our blueprint for the region’s transport network. It aims to enable a connected region, with safe, accessible and liveable places.
The RLTP sets the direction for transport in the region for the next 10-30 years. It identifies regional priorities and sets out the transport projects we intend to invest in.
The RLTP signals to Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency the projects the region is seeking funding for. Waka Kotahi will consider these projects as part of the National Land Transport Programme.
The RLTP is a collaborative plan, overseen by the Regional Transport Committee (RTC). RTC is a unique statutory committee. Although it is a committee of Greater Wellington, each council in the region has a voting member, along with a member each from Waka Kotahi and KiwiRail. The collective view of the RTC forms the basis of the RLTP.
Regional planning for transport is required under the Land Transport Management Act 2003.
The regional layer of transport planning is important as it:
Legislation allows the RLTP to be varied from time to time between official reviews every three years.
