Regional Land Transport Plan 2024-34

The Canterbury Regional Transport Committee (RTC) would like to thank all those who made submissions on the draft Canterbury Regional Land Transport Plan 2024–34 (RLTP). The consultation is now closed.

We received 131 submissions on the draft plan. Go to the Canterbury Regional Council's website to download submissions on the draft plan.

About the draft plan

The draft plan describes the region’s land transport system and the challenges it faces now and in the future. It sets out a vision and priorities for Canterbury’s transport system for the next 10 years, and how they might be achieved.

The transport activities listed in the plan are provided by the region's councils, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, and the Department of Conservation.

We are required to replace the plan every six years and review it every three years. This is a review of the 2021 plan.

Proposed changes to the plan

We’ve revised the plan with a 30-year vision for ‘an innovative, resilient, low emissions transport system that helps Canterbury thrive for generations’.

We’re proposing $10.8 billion investment in the region’s land transport network over the next decade. This is almost double the funding outlined in the 2021 plan.

The draft plan aims to strengthen road maintenance, improve network resilience, reduce emissions and enhance safety across the region.

Developing the plan

The plan has been developed by the Canterbury Regional Transport Committee, which includes representatives from the region's councils as well as Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency. The focus of the review was emissions reduction, effectiveness for Māori and better understanding of funding.

During 2023, we consulted with key stakeholders, land transport users and suppliers in the region to get feedback on how a lower emission transport system might work.
