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 - a joint committee of Gisborne District Council and Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency. Developing the RLTP is the primary role of the committee 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.
