Regional Land Transport Plan

Cover of RLTP

The Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP) has been developed for the region by the Waikato Regional Transport Committee, and sets out how we intend to develop the region’s land transport system over the next 30 years. It also identifies proposed regional transport activities for investment (local and/or central government) over the next six years.

The plan’s scope includes policy and activities related to our roading maintenance and improvements, public transport services and infrastructure, walking and cycling infrastructure, road safety education and transport planning across the region.

The plan is a new document that replaces the Regional Land Transport Strategy and Regional Land Transport Programme.

Waikato Regional Transport Committee

The committee comprises Mayors or their delegates from the region's territorial authorities, Waikato Regional Council, and the NZ Transport Agency.The committee is responsible for:

  • preparing the RLTP for approval by the regional council
  • providing the regional council with advice and assistance it may request in relation to transport
  • advocating for transport investment in the region
  • working collaboratively with local government and stakeholders across the region to prioritise and address transport issues
  • undertaking monitoring to assess progress on implementing the RLTP.
