Waka Kotahi recently submitted a tender to the Government Electronic Tender Service (GETS) regarding research into Maori experiences and expectations of the transport system in New Zealand.
The tender outlines the request for proposals into researching and identifying Maori experiences, expectations and priorities for transport in New Zealand.
It seeks to inform the development of key agency responses and help build capability within agencies like Waka Kotahi.
Research will build on what Waka Kotahi calls ‘phase one’ where it will engage with Maori and work with Te Manatū Waka (Ministry of Transport) and Waka Kotahi to understand a series of questions.
- How Māori perceive the transport system in Aotearoa and why have these perceptions come about?
- How are Māori impacted by the transport system day by day?
- How are Māori responding to government priorities for transport, such as the road to zero strategy and mode shift?
- What are the gaps in data and other evidence that can be used to characterise Māori experiences and impacts on them of the transport system?
- What responses are required to close data and evidence gaps, and how would these responses be prioritised by Māori?
We’re unsure how the research is going to impact private and public transport in New Zealand.
Wouldn’t it be great if instead of wasting money on Wokeist nonsense, the NZTA decided to improve roads severely in need of fixing, and expeditiously completed projects underway? Who’s behind this crap? —Eds
For goodness sake …………… where are we headed, in our country NEW ZEALAND; with this ridiculous pandering to the Maori minority.
Time up; time to stand up to this fake and fraud.
No more ………….. this is our country, NEW ZEALAND; and we are all NEW ZEALANDERS.
Jabcinda, and your mob of fakes, take a hike – give us back our COUNTRY, and get out of office – the maa-hootaa (with her corrupt and deceitful family) included.
What a joke. This government has brought this country to its knees now its going to flatten it.

In my view the research parameter that the New Zealand Transport Agency has posted on GETS – is absolutely indefensible in every respect.
It actually saddens me that the Transport Agency – that is making a significantly valid contribution to ‘The Road to Zero’ pan agency strategy, plan and action- in the core area of road safety- would put at risk its professional reputation through this dubious research.

What if they find maori cause more problems driving than everyone else, Are they going to build roads for them or insist that they go back to walking everywhere? What if they find areas with higher maori populations have more accidents, like happens in Nth Auckland, they may even find that maori dont need licenses to drive because it says so in the treaty
Their experience in Aotearoa is two bare feet for walking or muscular arms for paddling. Subsequently – exactly the same as every other person here. Done. Invoice $658,463.99. thanks

Utter blithering bonkers. Typical for our politicians. After all half of their voters have less than average IQ. More than half in the case of Labour.
