Land Transport Acts


The Land Transport Act (1998) sets out the legislative framework for land transport regulation and safety.


The Land Transport Management Act (2003) established the NZTA and provides the legal framework for managing and funding land transport activities. It also provides for a Government Policy Statement on land transport funding (GPS A Government Policy Statement on Land Transport Funding issued under section 86 of the LTMA ). To comply with its objectives under the Act, the NZTA contributes to an integrated, safe, responsive and sustainable land transport system and in doing so exhibits a sense of social and environmental sustainability.
