Publication details

Highways and Network Operations have launched the new Technical advice note series.

This Technical advice note series provides subscribers with up to date advice on policies, standards and guidelines relevant to state highway operations, maintenance and improvements including updates to technical information, specifications and manuals.

The Technical advice note series should be seen as the one source of truth associated with changes to our technical requirements.

Technical advice notes brings together and supersedes the following technical advice channels:

  • Environment and Urban Design technical memoranda
  • CoPTTM notifications
  • CRMS updates
  • Road Safety specification changes
  • Performance Management notifications
  • Updates and changes from the Outcome Planning, Structures, Property, Programming, Procurement, Pavements, Outcome Delivery teams

To subscribe, email with ‘subscribe’ in the subject header or click on the ‘subscribe’ link at the bottom of this note. Recipients of the above advice notes and all Highways and Network Operations staff have automatically been migrated/subscribed to the TAN distribution list.

All previous Technical advice notes will be available on the Highways Information Portal Technical advice note section.

This is a great opportunity to forward this on to any of your colleagues you may think will be interested in keeping up to date with requirements of the NZ Transport Agency Highways and Network Operations Group. It will be a valuable tool to keep abreast of what is happening across the industry.

For NZ Transport Agency staff, visit the Toolkit page of the Highways and Network Operations section of OnRamp to find more information about the process and requirements for issuing a Technical advice note.
