Record Government transport investment in Draft GPS 2021
- $54 billion to be invested in transport over 10 years.
- No petrol excise or road user charge increases proposed.
- Record investment in roads, public transport, rail, coastal shipping and walking and cycling.
The Ministry of Transport has released the draft Government Policy Statement on land transport 2021/22–2030/31 (the draft GPS 2021) for public feedback.
The GPS helps to guide investment in land transport by providing a long term strategic view of the Government’s priorities for investment in the land transport network.
The GPS provides direction and guidance to those who are planning, assessing, and making decisions on investment of over $4 billion a year from the National Land Transport Fund (NLTF). It also provides signals for a further $1 billion co-investment each year by local government.
