Introduction

This page provides contextual details and links to information relating to the Transport Agency’s investment performance measures. 

On this page, the measures are organised by the Ministry of Transport’s (MoT) Transport Outcomes Framework and then by investment performance benefits.

The numbering for the measures is from the  full [PDF, 187 KB]list of performance measures .

Only the measures with centralised information are included, so the numbers are not sequential. Please see the full list to understand where each measure fits within the complete set.

If you are not currently able to open the information and would like to request access, please contact investment.benefits@nzta.govt.nz.

The measures with centralised information have brief measure definitions in drop-down tables. 

A link to the storymap (information) is provided for each, alongside other contextual description. 

This includes where each measure fits in the overall framework and its relationships with other measures.

  • Measure relationships

    Many measures have relationships with other measures in the suite.

    There are three types of relationship:

      • Companion: Can be used in conjunction with each other to complete the evidence for a particular benefit
      • Cause-effect: Improving the results for one measure leads to improvement of the results for another measure
      • Conflict: To be balanced against each other to avoid unintended consequences.

Economic prosperity

This outcome is described by MoT as:

'encouraging economic activity via local, regional, and international connections, with efficient movements of people and products'.

    Information

    Definition of terms High productivity motor vehicles (HPMV) including 50MAX are trucks that are able to operate above the current 44 tonne weight limit under permit.
    Centralised information availability Centralised information is available (from August 2019).

    A map of HPMV routes is available and the data is currently in the process of being released.
    Information items Map/data item name Description
    HPMV map

    The full HPMV network map shows the routes that are suitable for HPMVs carrying the maximum loads available under a permit.

    The map is intended to give operators guidance on where bridges can safely support full HPMV mass limits. It does not mean that HPMVs cannot travel under a permit on roads that are not on the map, but the permit may specify lower mass limits for these roads.

    The full HPMV network map differs from the 50MAX network map.
