Resilience position statement

Our position is the resilience of the land transport system is increased by managing risks and long-term resilience challenges and helping communities quickly recover from disruptions.


Resilience in the context of land transport

Greater emphasis on Resilience within the Government Policy Statement on Land Transport 2018/19-2027/28(external link) has led the Transport Agency to shift its system-centric focus on resilience to include the community and social benefits of a resilient multi-modal land transport system. 

Resilience Framework

The Transport Agency’s Resilience Framework [PDF, 387 KB] operationalises our position statement. It also supports other strategic work being undertaken by the Transport Agency such as the Arataki – Ten Year Plan (TBC) and the Investment Decision-Making Framework.

There are four workstreams under which projects will be delivered in phases between now and 2021. The workstreams are: (add links to descriptions when complete)

  • Understanding Risk and Vulnerabilities
  • Planning and Decision making
  • Transport System Resilience
  • Organisational and Community Resilience

Business continuity plans

As much as we can try to avoid disruptive events and emergencies, we can’t always prevent them. In those instances we need to ensure the Transport Agency can operate effectively during, and after, any event that disrupts our business activities.

Emergency response plans

This work stream focuses on ensuring our response teams are well prepared for events that can disrupt the network.

Resilience planning tools

As we learn more about the resilience of the road network to the range of possible unexpected disruptions and other unexpected disruptions, we better understand where we need to invest - both to increase its resilience and to provide better indicators and predictors of potential disruption.

We apply a resilience evaluation lens to the business case process used for our investment and management decision making.
