Canterbury’s transport needs are co-funded through a partnership between central and local government.  Requests for funding support from central government are outlined in the Canterbury Regional Land Transport Plan 2015-2021.

The priorities in the plan reflect regional, national and international challenges and trends.  The programmes and projects in it are the regional responses to these challenges and include specific actions for Canterbury’s regional, city and district councils and the NZ Transport Agency(external link).

The plan underwent a mid-term review, as required by the Land Transport Management Act 2003, and the revised plan was issued in June 2018.
