Transport is vital to everyday life, from going to where we work and play to getting access to goods and services. The Horizons Regional Land Transport Plan is a statutory document outlining the current and desired future state for the Manawatu-Whanganui Region’s transport system. The Plan has been developed by the Regional Transport Committee and is a collaboration between all councils in the region, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and KiwiRail.
It sets out the strategic direction and aspirations for land transport in the region, with a list of activities that will achieve this direction. Ultimately the Regional Land Transport Plan signals where transport investment is planned in the short to medium term to achieve our desired state. The long term vision for transport in the region is to be a region that connections central New Zealand and supports safe, accessible and sustainable transport options.
Information, documents and forms for submission are available at the Horizons Regional Council website. Submissions close March 17 2021.
