Overview of the Vote#

Vote Transport ($7,906 million in 2021/22) encompasses the funding of land, air and water transport infrastructure investments, services, and regulatory activities. The appropriations under the Vote support the purpose of the transport system, which is to improve people's wellbeing, and the liveability of places. It does this by contributing to 5 key outcomes: inclusive access, healthy and safe people, environmental sustainability, resilience and security, and economic prosperity.

The major entities involved in the Vote are the Ministry of Transport; the transport Crown entities Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, Civil Aviation Authority (incorporating the Aviation Security Service), Maritime New Zealand, and Transport Accident Investigation Commission; State owned enterprise KiwiRail Holdings Limited; and City Rail Link Limited, a schedule 4A company under the Public Finance Act.

National Land Transport Programme

In 2021/22, the largest element of the Vote is the funding of the National Land Transport Programme (NLTP) ($3,967 million or 50% of the Vote). The NLTP is funded out of the National Land Transport Fund (NLTF), which is made up of the net inflows of land transport and certain other revenue (eg, tolls) and associated borrowing. The NLTP compromises a number of operating activities classes:

  • State highway improvements $934 million
  • Local road maintenance $650 million
  • Public transport services and infrastructure $669 million
  • State highway maintenance $405 million
  • Rail network $120 million
  • Road to zero infrastructure $116 million
  • Investment management $85 million
  • Local road improvements $100 million
  • Walking and cycling improvements $57 million
  • Road safety promotion $48 million, and
  • Coastal shipping $10 million.

The NLTP also includes capital expenditure on State highways ($301 million), Road to Zero infrastructure ($260 million), Public transport ($171 million), Walking and cycling ($38 million), and Road safety promotion ($3 million).

A $750 million loan facility for cash flow management (9% of the Vote) is in place. This appropriation does not take account of any repayments made and the facility may not exceed $500 million at any one time.

Rail

In addition to rail funding through the NLTP, in 2021/22, additional Crown funding for Rail makes up 22% of the Vote - $1,770 million, mainly:

  • $753 million equity investment in KiwiRail Holdings Limited to finance capital expenditure on the national freight network. $294 million of the 2021/22 funding relates to the New Zealand Upgrade Programme and $292 million relates to rolling stock investment
  • $585 million for the Crown's 50% share of investment in the Auckland City Rail Link, matched by Auckland Council
  • $236 million for the maintenance and renewal of the rail network
  • $66 million for approved rail-related projects that contribute to the outcome of a lift in the productivity potential of the regions from the Provincial Growth Fund
  • $62 million equity injection to New Zealand Railways Corporation relating to property transactions funded by KiwiRail Holdings Limited
  • $27 million for the establishment of a local wagon assembly plant in Dunedin
  • $23 million to maintain the operation of the existing electric locomotive fleet
  • $7 million from property transactions by New Zealand Railways Corporation, reinvested in KiwiRail Holdings Limited
  • $4 million for public policy projects and rail safety
  • $4 million for shovel-ready projects
  • $2 million for the operational costs of Auckland City Rail Link, and
  • $1 million for KiwiRail Holidays Act remediation.
Road

In addition to the funding for roading through the NLTP, additional Crown and loan funding is provided for specific roading projects. In 2021/22 this equates to 12% of the Vote ($900 million):

  • $755 million for the New Zealand Upgrade Programme
  • $70 million towards Provincial Growth Fund infrastructure projects
  • $40 million in loans from the Housing Infrastructure Fund
  • $34 million for Regional State Highways, and
  • $1 million for reinstatement of State Highway 1 between Picton and Christchurch.
Crown Entity and Other Funding

The balance ($519 million) making up 7% of the Vote is mainly split between:

  • $51 million for services provided by and capital expenditure incurred by the Ministry of Transport
  • $251 million for Crown entities for outputs and capital expenditure. The transport Crown entities receive most of their funding from third party levies, fees and charges. Crown funding is split between the Crown entities as follows:
    • Civil Aviation Authority (including Aviation Security Service) $135 million
    • Maritime New Zealand $44 million
    • Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency $65 million, and
    • Transport Accident Investigation Commission $7 million.
  • $120 million for maintaining air services as part of the response to COVID-19
  • $31 million for SuperGold Card public transport concessions
  • $26 million for weather forecasting services from the Meteorological Service of New Zealand
  • $15 million for water search, rescue and safety frontline services
  • $13 million to third parties for Search and Rescue and recreational boating safety
  • $5 million for the Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast Transponders Rebate Scheme
  • $5 million to other third parties, and
  • $2 million for Joint Venture Airports.

In accordance with the transport funding principles, transport regulator functions are funded through a mix of targeted taxes, levies, and fees, with a relatively small share of Crown funding. The principles use the concepts of club, private and public goods to guide the allocation of costs of providing policy and regulatory functions in the transport regulatory system.

There is an ongoing programme of regulator fee and funding reviews to assess the appropriate regulatory costs and funding streams. Further, some Vote funding for the Civil Aviation Authority and Maritime New Zealand is provided from the Working Safer levy collected under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015.

Details of these appropriations are set out in Parts 2-4.

Analysis of Significant Trends

Significant trends in Vote Transport are discussed briefly below. In all of the tables, the 2016/17 to 2019/20 figures are actual and the other years are forecasts.

Tax Revenue

Land transport revenue is hypothecated by legislation to the National Land Transport Fund, the majority of which pays for the National Land Transport Programme. In 2021/22, the Crown is forecast to collect $4,403 million of land transport revenue.

There are three types of land transport revenue:

  • fuel excise duty paid on petroleum-based fuels by the importer
  • road user charges paid by owners of diesel and, in future, other non-petroleum based vehicles, and
  • motor vehicle registration fees paid by owners of most vehicles.

The first is collected by the New Zealand Customs Service and the others by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency.

Land transport revenue is forecast at least twice a year and the funding to the NLTP is adjusted upwards or downwards in line with revenue.

Regional Fuel Tax is not revenue for the Crown and is therefore not included within Vote Transport.

Revenue Trends
  2016/17 2017/18 2018/19 2019/20 2020/21 2021/22 2022/23 2023/24 2024/25

Motor vehicle registration (net) 223 227 227 226 224 222 226 229 231
Fuel excise duty refunds (56) (65) (66) (68) (76) (81) (82) (82) (83)
Vote Transport tax revenue 1,636 1,713 1,834 1,874 2,045 2,094 2,195 2,283 2,365
Fuel excise duty 1,969 1,969 2,053 1,950 2,212 2,309 2,316 2,328 2,340
Total land transport tax revenue 3,605 3,682 3,887 3,824 4,257 4,403 4,511 4,611 4,705

Over the years shown above, road user charges and fuel excise duty rates were increased in 2018, 2019 and 2020. There has been an increase in fuel excise duty of 3.5 cents per litre effective 1 July 2020, with equivalent increases in road user charges rates effective from 1 July 2020. The land transport revenue forecast above includes the current anticipated impacts of COVID-19. Any further policy decisions on New Zealand's COVID-19 alert level system are likely to impact land transport revenue. This will be monitored by the Ministry of Transport, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, and the Treasury.

The land transport tax revenue is hypothecated to the National Land Transport Fund and therefore can be approved pursuant to a permanent legislative authority. For transparency, the expenditure proposed is shown in the Estimates although no annual appropriation is required. This disclosure provides a transparent view of the Government's books as the land transport tax revenue is matched by equal expenditure. If the expenditure was not shown, the revenue would create an apparent surplus.

The figures shown by type of appropriation in the Summary of Financial Activity table (section 1.2) have been reanalysed by purpose, to allow for a more meaningful and straightforward explanation of the trends.

The funding by each purpose is explained in more detail below.

Government Policy Statement and the National Land Transport Programme (NLTP)

The Government Policy Statement on land transport (GPS) sets out the Government's priorities for land transport investment for 10 years. The GPS is a statutory document required by the Land Transport Management Act 2003. It also sets ranges of expenditure on defined activities.

The GPS is central to transport planning processes. Local authorities develop their regional land transport plans (RLTPs) using the signals provided in the GPS. Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency selects projects from within the RLTPs to develop the three-year National Land Transport Programme, which gives effect to the GPS.

The GPS that is currently in force is the GPS 2018 which came into force on 1 July 2018. A revised GPS was published in September 2020 and will take effect from 1 July 2021 relating to the years 2021/22 to 2030/31.

The current NLTP was adopted on 1 September 2018 and is effective for the years 2018/19 to 2020/21. A new NLTP will be in force from 1 September 2021 effective for the years 2021/22 to 2023/24.

There are two permanent legislative authority appropriations (PLAs) for the NLTP - one operating and one capital in nature. The other sections of this document provide more detail on expenditure by the different activity classes.

In addition to the permanent legislative authority funding, there are some annual appropriations for specific purposes.

Permanent Legislative Authority Funding

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency balances the funding available between the operating and capital appropriations to deliver the NLTP. The Agency uses the capital appropriation to fund the delivery of new infrastructure. For transparency, the Agency manages the funding by allocating sufficient funding to the operating appropriation to deliver the activities planned. Any shortfall is reflected in the capital appropriation and is managed using the loan facilities detailed below.

Annual Appropriations - Loans for the Management of Cash Flow for a Three Year NLTP within the Annual Government Budget Cycle

The NLTP is a three-year programme, with Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency Board required to approve funding for activity over multiple years. Variations in project timing, cost overruns and fluctuations in revenue may result in expenditure in a particular year exceeding the available funds, despite being within the expected range over the three years. Such negative cash flow variations may require adjustments to the land transport programme in the short to medium term.

This has been addressed by approving a borrowing facility to manage short-term cash flow variations between hypothecated revenue inflows and expenditure outflows. The facility allows Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency greater flexibility and efficiency in managing the timing of any required adjustments to the programme. This borrowing facility has two components:

  • up to $250 million, for the purpose of managing regular seasonal cash flow cycles (to be repaid during the construction off-season, when revenue inflows exceed expenditure), and
  • up to $250 million, for the purpose of managing unexpected and unavoidable cash flow variations.

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is responsible for managing the facility and it draws down the loan and makes repayments as revenue levels permit. The constraint is that the loan balance may not exceed $500 million at any time. In calculating the size of the appropriation, only drawdowns can be taken into account and so the appropriation of $750 million shown above is not a reflection of the net funding being provided. The size of actual drawdowns can be seen in the figures for previous years. The Agency reports quarterly to the Minister of Transport on the ongoing management of the loan against its terms and conditions.

Loans for Specific Projects

The Crown has provided a loan facility to Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency from the Housing Infrastructure Fund. $345 million is available over the three years from 2020/21 to 2022/23. Previously, loans have been provided to Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency to accelerate projects in the Auckland transport package and for the reinstatement of earthquake-damaged roads in Christchurch.

Other Roading Funding from the Crown

Land transport revenue is intended to be the primary source of funding for the roading activities within the NLTP but the Crown can appropriate additional funding if it wishes. The other funding for roading is for specific projects such as the reinstatement of State Highway 1 between Picton and Christchurch ($1 million), Regional State highways ($34 million) and the New Zealand Upgrade Programme ($755 million).

Provincial Growth Fund - Roading

In 2021/22, $70 million of Provincial Growth Fund funding is allocated for infrastructure projects.

Capital - Investment in the New Zealand Rail System

This equity funding is provided to support capital expenditure by KiwiRail Holdings Limited for the New Zealand rail system. The Crown appropriated $753 million to support capital expenditure for 2021/22. As part of the Future of Rail review, the Crown has appropriated $438 million to support rolling stock investment ($292 million), core asset management ($57 million), and ferry assets ($89 million). $294 million of the capital appropriation relates to the New Zealand Upgrade Programme and $21 million relates to shovel-ready projects.

Capital - Property Transactions

This balance reflects property transactions by New Zealand Railways Corporation, the proceeds of which must be reinvested in KiwiRail Holdings Limited. An appropriation is required to recognise the increase in equity in KiwiRail Holdings Limited due to the receipt of these proceeds. This appropriation is not additional funding from the Crown. The balance also includes equity injection to New Zealand Railways Corporation relating to property transactions funded by KiwiRail Holdings Limited.

Other Projects - Operating and Capital Funding

For 2021/22, the projects include the maintenance and renewal of the rail network ($236 million), the establishment of a local wagon assembly plant in Dunedin ($27 million), the maintenance of the existing electric locomotive fleet ($23 million), shovel-ready projects ($4 million), public policy and railway safety work ($4 million), and the KiwiRail Holidays Act remediation ($1 million).

Auckland City Rail Link

This funding is for the Crown's 50% share of costs ($585 million for 2021/22) for the Auckland City Rail Link which is being delivered by City Rail Link Limited. The Crown is a co-sponsor of the project along with the Auckland Council. The Auckland City Rail Link is expected to be complete by 2024/25. There is also $2 million of funding for the operating costs associated with the project.

Provincial Growth Fund - Rail

In 2021/22, $66 million of Provincial Growth Fund funding is allocated to rail projects.

Funding to Crown Entities

Total 34 36 31 76 203 251 138 113 59

Most transport Crown entity activity is funded from the NLTP or fees and charges and so the Crown funding is relatively small. The majority of Crown entity funding for 2021/22 comprises funding for the protection of transport agency functions in light of COVID-19 ($147 million), funding for Waka Kotahi to implement the Clean Car Standard ($17 million), funding for CAA to upgrade the aviation security infrastructure and regulatory technology platform ($16 million), and funding for Search and Rescue activities ($12 million).

A loan facility is also in place for $76 million over 2020/21 to 2024/25 to provide loans to Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency for approved regulatory cost pressures.

The 'Other' category is mainly funding paid to third parties and one off projects. Key elements in 2021/22 are:

  • Maintaining air services ($120 million)
  • SuperGold Card public transport concessions ($31 million)
  • purchase of weather forecasting services from the Meteorological Service of New Zealand ($26 million)
  • Water search, rescue and safety frontline services ($15 million)
  • Search and Rescue and recreational boating safety activities ($13 million)
  • Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast Transponders Rebate Scheme ($5 million), and
  • Bad debt provision for road user charges ($4 million).

Total funding to the Ministry 35 36 41 53 58 51 48 45 45

The Departmental funding fluctuates throughout the years as a result of one-off funding for specific projects, increased third party revenue, and transfers of funding between years.

Non-Tax Revenue

Tolling revenue comes from the Northern Gateway road that is tolled by the Crown to repay the costs of the road.

Other revenue is now only fines, which are usually around $2 million per annum.

Capital Receipts
  2016/17 2017/18 2018/19 2019/20 2020/21 2021/22 2022/23 2023/24 2024/25

This balance reflects the proceeds of the property transactions by New Zealand Railways Corporation, which must be reinvested in KiwiRail Holdings Limited. The receipts are reflected in the Crown's books and there is an equal appropriation to recognise the increase in equity in KiwiRail Holdings Limited. The appropriation is included in the Rail Funding section earlier in this document as Capital - Property.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The increase in this appropriation for 2021/22 is due to:

  • $1.445 million of additional funding in 2021/22 compared to 2020/21 as a result of the triennial funding review on the use of fuel excise duty paid by recreational boating participants, and
  • a carry forward of $700,000 from 2020/21 to 2023/24 due to the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet moving a major Search and Rescue exercise to 2023/24.

This increase is partially offset by:

  • a carry forward of $600,000 from 2021/22 to 2023/24 due to the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet moving a major Search and Rescue exercise to 2023/24, and
  • one-off funding of $190,000 in 2020/21 to implement a new IT system.

Funding has been rephased since the approval of the above initiatives and so no longer agrees to the figures shown in the initiatives table above.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The decrease in this appropriation for 2021/22 is mostly due to:

  • $8.927 million carried forward from 2019/20 to 2020/21 due to updated forecasting on a number of Ministry projects including the Green Transport Card, Auckland Light Rail, Maintaining Airfreight Capacity, Transport Connectivity Programme, Future of Rail, and City Rail Link Limited Monitoring
  • $800,000 additional funding in 2020/21 compared to 2021/22 for the Surface Transport Cost and Charges Study and the development and maintenance of a comprehensive system approach to revenue policy
  • $800,000 of one-off funding approved for 2020/21 for the administration of the international airfreight capacity scheme
  • $650,000 of one-off funding approved for 2020/21 for the Auckland Light Rail programme
  • $500,000 of one-off funding approved for 2020/21 to support a resilient and reliable rail freight network, and
  • $140,000 of additional funding in 2020/21 compared to 2021/22 for the governance and monitoring of the New Zealand Upgrade Programme.

This decrease is partially offset by:

  • $1.304 million carried forward from 2020/21 to 2021/22 due to delays caused by COVID-19 on the Drone Regulation Programme, Regulatory System Assessment, Upper North Island Supply Chain Strategy and work on the Milford Aerodrome, and
  • $700,000 of additional funding in 2021/22 for the new international air services scheme.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The appropriation represents the operating expenditure of the National Land Transport Programme (NLTP) and its size varies each year depending on the activities in the Programme and the land transport revenue available.

The Government Policy Statement on land transport identifies ranges of expenditure that the government wishes to commit to different land transport activities. Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency in conjunction with regional bodies then develops the NLTP, detailing how the funding will be spent and what it will deliver within the ranges. The Government Policy Statement is a ten-year document which is reviewed every three years. The NLTP is a three-year document. A revised Government Policy Statement was published and will take effect from 1 July 2021 relating to the years 2021/22 to 2030/31 and a new NLTP will be in force from 1 September 2021 relating to the years 2021/22 to 2023/24.

The current indicative expenditure for 2020/21 and 2021/22 is shown above in the Components of the Appropriation table. Expenditure may vary year on year for activities depending on the particular work being undertaken. More detail is available from Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency's website.

Funding has been rephased since the approval of these initiatives and so no longer agrees to the figures shown in the initiatives table above.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The increase in this appropriation for 2021/22 is due to increased investment in the New Zealand rail system with an instalment of working capital into KiwiRail and funding for the third tranche of KiwiRail's rolling stock and mechanical maintenance facilities investment programme, as indicated in the initiatives table above.

This increase is partially offset by a fiscally neutral adjustment moving approved capital funding for Future of Rail network components to operating funding, to align with the Future of Rail principles.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The decrease in this appropriation for 2021/22 is due to all the funding having been originally allocated to the 2020/21 financial year. Due to delays in physical works caused by COVID-19 and after more detailed planning was undertaken by Crown agencies and local authorities, funding was carried forward from 2020/21 to outyears.
