Welcome to RCA Forum

The Road Controlling Authorities Forum New Zealand Inc (RCAF or RCA Forum) is a closed, non-political group with representatives from the 66 territorial local authorities, the Department of Conservation, Land Transport New Zealand, Local Government New Zealand and Transit New Zealand.  Since 1 August 2008 Land Transport New Zealand and Transit New Zealand have become the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA).

The RCAF consists of the Executive, comprising Convenors and representatives of the member organisations, as well as the individual members from the majority of the 66 territorial local authorities (Including Auckland Transport).

The purpose of the RCAF is to exchange information and provide updates on working groups, legislation, standards and guidelines, highway and procurement strategies and other issues relevant to road controlling authorities and the other member organisations.

As the RCAF is an Incorporated Society it works to a set of Rules.

The RCAF also has a Strategic Plan.

The RCAF Vision is to ‘Assist Road Control Authorities to make informed decisions’.
