17th of August 

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

The GPS is the Government’s strategy for investing in the land transport system. It outlines what the Government wants to achieve in land transport, and how it expects funding to be allocated from the National Land Transport Fund across activities.  

Each GPS sets out the priorities for a 10-year period and is updated every three years.  

We’re seeking feedback on the draft GPS 2024, which builds on the strategic priorities of GPS 2021, including supporting improved transport choices, improving safety and freight connections, and reducing the impact of transport on our environment. It proposes a strengthened focus on maintaining assets and services and enhancing resilience, recognising recent flood and weather-related recovery efforts.  

It also sets out a series of projects that the Government has identified as strategically important to New Zealand’s transport system in the coming decades. 

We welcome your feedback and submissions. Following consultation, we will use the feedback to provide advice to the Minister of Transport on the final GPS 2024. The final GPS comes into effect on 1 July 2024. Please provide your feedback via our questionnaire(external link).

If you have any questions please contact us on

Consultation will close on 15 September 2023.
