Investment in Transport Infrastructure has lagged behind growth for decades. Urgent action is needed to provide a Transport Network that is both safe and productive.
The state of our roads is of grave concern to our members.
Roads are their workplace and New Zealand has failed to adequately invest in road improvements for decades.
Better roads are safer roads, they can also reduce emissions and lead to increased productivity.
New Zealand needs a safer and more resilient road network
Road to Zero sets us on a path to achieve Vision Zero, a New Zealand where no one is killed or seriously injured on our roads.
If we are to achieve Vision Zero, we need to create a safe transport system; one that recognises humans make mistakes and is designed so that these mistakes do not need to cost us our lives.
New Zealand is on the path to a low emissions, climate resilient future. Our Government has set into law a target for net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. As part of this there are targets and actions to achieve a 41% reduction in transport emissions by 2035.
New Zealand is on the path to a low emissions, climate resilient future.
Government has set into law a target for net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 (other than for biogenic methane).
The Emissions Reduction Plan is one mechanism they are using to focus our collective efforts toward transitioning to a more resilient, low emissions economy.
Transport emissions must be slashed 13 percent by 2030, and 41 percent by 2035.
E-vehicles will need to make up 30 percent of the fleet by 2035.
One of the most promising pathways to a fossil fuel free transport future, Green hydrogen has the potential to play a significant role in our energy system and could play an important role in decarbonising the transport sector.
