What you need to know

The Government Policy Statement on land transport (GPS) sets the Government’s priorities for land transport investment over the next 10-year period. It also sets out how money from the National Land Transport Fund (NLTF) is spent on activities such as public transport, state highway improvements, local roads, and road safety — we call these activity classes. Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and local authorities need to ensure spend on transport reflects Government priorities outlined by the GPS.

We review and update the GPS every 3 years. The first GPS came into effect in 2009, with subsequent versions in effect on 1 July 2012, 2015 and 2018. We published GPS 2021 in September 2020.

To support enhanced reporting, monitoring and evaluation of GPS investment, we have developed an ongoing GPS monitoring and evaluation work programme. This programme supports how we improve the GPS and how it achieves effective transport outcomes.
