Te Tairāwhiti Regional Land Transport Plan

Te Tairāwhiti Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP) sets out the current state of our transport network, the challenges we face, and the priorities for future investment. The plan sets out:

  • the context in which the transport system operates
  • the vision and strategic objectives for the transport system
  • the priorities for investment – key areas where further investment is required in order to achieve the vision and objectives
  • a prioritised regional programme of transport activities.

This plan was developed by Gisborne Regional Transport Committee (RTC).

The RTC is a joint committee of Gisborne District Council (Council) and Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency (Waka Kotahi). Developing the RLTP is the primary role of the RTC and is a requirement under the Land Transport Management Act 2003.

A number of statutes and policy documents provide the legislative and policy context for land transport planning and investment at the national, regional and local level.
