    Government to inject extra $45 million into NZTA

    The Government will inject an extra 45 million dollars into NZTA after an independent report concluded it had failed in one of its major responsibilities


    But the Government is blaming National for the failures that led to Transport Minister Phil Twyford commissioning an independent report investigating its operations.

    The review found the previous transport ministers had directed NZTA to "focus on building roads" at the expense of keeping people safe.

    The report also found that NZTA had failed to properly regulate the transport sector under the previous Government.

    In response to the review, the Government has confirmed it will adopt all a raft of recommended changes as soon as possible.
