The Government has released the draft Government Policy Statement on land transport 2024.

The GPS sets out the Government’s land transport strategy including:

  • what it expects to be achieved from its investment in land transport through the National Land Transport Fund (NLTF)
  • what it expects to be achieved from its direct investment in land transport
  • how much funding will be provided and how the funding will be raised
  • how it will achieve its outcomes and priorities through investment in certain areas, known as “activity classes” (eg. the maintenance of state highways or road policing)
  • a statement of the Minister’s expectations of how the New Zealand Transport Agency gives effect to this GPS.

This draft GPS replaces the GPS that the former Government consulted on in August 2023.

Draft GPS 2024 released for consultation

The Minister of Transport today released the draft Government Policy Statement on land transport (GPS) 2024 for feedback.

The draft GPS outlines the Government’s plan for investing in land transport over the next 10 years by directing $7 billion per year in expenditure from the National Land Transport Fund.

The draft GPS prioritises economic growth and productivity, increased maintenance and resilience, safety, and value for money from transport expenditure. It also reintroduces the Roads of National Significance programme that was started under the previous National Government in 2009.

This draft GPS replaces the GPS that the former Government consulted on in August 2023.

Following consultation, the Ministry of Transport will use the feedback to provide advice to the Minister of Transport on the final GPS 2024. The final GPS will into effect by July 2024.  

We welcome your feedback on this document. You can email us at GPS@transport.govt.nz or you can submit feedback via a consultation survey here. 

Consultation will close at 12pm on 2 April 2024.
