National Road Centreline Road Controlling Authority data

We want to hear from you! This brief survey will help us build an ongoing picture of who is (or isn’t) using our open data, for what and how we can improve it. You can also contact us directly at Take the Waka Kotahi open data survey


RCAs include all Territorial Authorities and Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency. The point geometry of this dataset represents the start and end points of each carriageway. National Road Centreline and RCA attributes - field descriptions The dataset updates every month. Data reuse caveats: as per license. Data quality statement: the October 2018 release holds 76% of RCA attribution; we are still working with the remaining RCAs to include their data. Data quality caveats: for API explorer users, there is a known issue with number-based attribute filters where the “AND” operator is used instead of the “BETWEEN” operator. Substituting “BETWEEN” for “AND” manually in the query URL will resolve this.
