The Horowhenua Integrated Transport Strategy will recognise the district’s changing travel demands and address its transport challenges over the next 30 years relating to a range of factors including climate change, growth, demography, technology, peak oil, employment patterns, and the wider economy.

Aim of the strategy

The aim is to develop an integrated, multi-modal transport strategy for the district.  It will provide an overarching strategic vision and principles that will be used to guide and inform infrastructure planning, investment and delivery over the next 30 years.

Horowhenua needs a safe, responsive, resilient and sustainable transport system and viable public transport system, which is affordable and integrated with the national and regional context for rail and state highways.

Development of the Horowhenua Integrated Transport Strategy will be undertaken alongside New Zealand Transport Agency’s (NZTA) work on the Ōtaki to North of Levin (Ō2NL) projects, and is expected to inform planning work for the expressway. NZTA will continue to provide updates to stakeholders and the community on the expressway project, and Council will continue to collaborate with NZTA on critical elements of the project that are import for the District and community.
