Canterbury Regional Transport Committee

The Canterbury Regional Transport Committee comprises representatives from agencies who put forward activities to be included in the Canterbury Regional Land Transport Plan. Responsibility for delivering activities in the plan rests with the proposing agency. The committee monitors implementation.

As well as producing the Canterbury Regional Land Transport Plan, the committee advises Environment Canterbury on transport issues and advocates for legislative and policy changes at a national level. Minutes and agendas from committee meetings are available here.
