Want to help shape the future of transport in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland? Now is your chance to have your say on the major transport plan for the future of our city. 

The draft Regional Land Transport Plan is open for public feedback. This major plan sets out the projects, programmes, and activities that Auckland Transport, along with NZTA Waka Kotahi and KiwiRail are seeking to fund, or partly fund, from the National Land Transport Fund. It proposes $63 billion worth of investment in transport over the next 10 years. 

Chief Executive of Auckland Transport, Dean Kimpton, says this is the chance for all residents of Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland to share their views.  

“This is a major programme with some big choices and a lot of investment, so we need to hear from as many people as possible. We want to know what your priorities are. Unfortunately, we can’t provide everything, so we have some hard choices to make. We need Aucklanders to help us make those decisions about what we prioritise. 

“What Aucklanders tell us is vital towards ensuring that we are aligning what we do with the lived experiences and expectations of our communities.”

Increasing the size of the cycling network is one of the options in the plan

The priorities in the draft plan are taken from Auckland Council’s Long-Term Plan and the government’s recent policy statement on land transport. 

Auckland Transport urges you to take part in the consultation and share which transport priorities are important to you. You can also suggest other priorities that you think should be considered. 

The final plan will be submitted to NZTA Waka Kotahi in August. The Regional Land Transport Plan is reviewed every three years, with the most recent version published in 2021. 

Visit haveyoursay.at.govt.nz to have your say on the future of transport in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland. Consultation closes on Monday 17 June 2024.
