Supporting these vital civil and infrastructure projects through our Geotechnical and slope stabilisation services – as well as continuing to provide specialist bridge design, engineering and bridge construction packages – will facilitate extending existing walking and cycling networks, providing connections to public transport hubs, improving safety and accessibility, and helping revitalise regional economies with new tourism opportunities.
We’re not just proud kiwis but also keen conservationists, and it’s a privilege to assist our local councils. NZTA make it easy for people to move around without using cars to help reduce congestion and greenhouse gases and deliver better health benefits for Aotearoa.
