Transport reports

A list of reports, articles, or published letters about transport agencies or transport-related matters.
Reviewing aspects of the Auckland Manukau Eastern Transport Initiative
October 2015: Progress with technical aspects – such as reaching design solutions, developing procurement options, and budget management – has been strong.

We made 12 recommendations to help Auckland Transport strengthen AMETI’s governance, accountability, and programme management arrangements.

September 2010: NZTA had good descriptive and condition information about the state highway roads, and it had a planning framework that enabled it to use this information for day-to-day maintenance and renewal of the road network. However, not all of its information was complete, especially for structures such as bridges and tunnels. Its long-term planning was also incomplete at the time of our audit...
