Transport infrastructure upgrades to get NZ moving and prepared for the future

  • $6.8 billion for transport infrastructure in our six main growth areas - Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Wellington, Canterbury and Queenstown.
  • $1.1 billion for rail.
  • $2.2 billion for new roads in Auckland.

The Government’s programme of new investments in roads and rail will help future proof the economy, get our cities moving, and make our roads safer.

Transport Minister Phil Twyford says these important projects will speed up travel times, ease congestion and make our roads safer by taking trucks off them and moving more freight to rail.

The site in Petone, Lower Hutt called Paetutu, was offered to Taranaki Whānui under its right of refusal as part of its Treaty of Waitangi Settlement, a group of iwi that settled in the Wellington region in the 1830s. The Jackson St area was blessed on Thursday morning, with the first residents set to move in soon.
