To do this the council is involved in the planning, provision, development, operation and maintenance of a district land transportation network for many modes of travel and for public access. State Highways within our district are managed by the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) and are not part of our Council activity.

Our Roading Business - Activities and Services A well-maintained roading network enables economic activity and growth by allowing for the efficient transport of goods and services and by promoting visitor access to the Coromandel. Road safety is also improved as part of proactive road maintenance. While the Council has a legal obligation to form and maintain roads (with the exception of State Highways) within the district, the Council determines the service level at which roads are maintained and whether or not a road is maintained if the public benefit is limited. The Council’s transport management decisions are shaped by its 2007 Land Transport Strategy, which is underpinned by the Waikato Regional Land Transport Strategy, the New Zealand Transport Act 2003 and the Local Government Act 2002. Our role includes ensuring new roads constructed through land development projects, meet District Plan requirements. Council's local road network is maintained through multi-year maintenance contracts and is renewed and improved through annual resealing, pavement reconstruction, widening and minor improvement contracts. The Council manages the District Transportation network and funds the ongoing costs for most transportation activities using a subsidy from NZTA. NZTA subsidises road maintenance and construction work at 43% and 53% respectively. This means the true cost of the District Transportation activity is approximately double that funded by rate revenue.
