The projects are funded at 100 percent from Transfund's regional development output group for the 2003/04 National Land Transport Programme.

The regional development output group was set up in 2002/03 to assist areas with acute transport needs to primarily provide or improve access in such a way that will encourage direct additional investment in the region.


Transfund New Zealand is the government agency responsible for allocating funding toward an affordable, integrated, safe, responsive and sustainable land transport system for New Zealand. It funds a range of land transport solutions based on funding applications received from Transit New Zealand, territorial authorities and regional councils.
