This dataset was last updated on LINZ Data Service on 16 Jul 2017.

Please read: This layer provides linear geometries against which official road names and street addresses can be recorded. Its purpose is also to enable automated meshblock address reports (for electoral and statistical purposes) so as to identify the presence of a road name in meshblocks where street addresses do not exist.

For this layer (as opposed to the NZ Roads Subsections (Addressing) layer, individual road section geometries have been aggregated to a single road centreline geometry where those subsections share the same name, and are generally contiguous. Because some roads have multiple names for part of their lengths, some road centreline geometries will duplicate parts of other roads even though there is in reality only one road formation. This layer has been simplified from LINZ’s NZ Roads dataset, a centralised database for the management of national road data. The comprehensive set of NZ Roads tables is also available.

These road centrelines do not represent actual road formation, nor do they represent legal access. They must not be considered as topographic, cadastral, or legal.

This layer contains the core attributes of a road to support simple searching or provide a road name context for cadastral data views. This dataset is a replacement for the NZ Road Centre Line (Electoral) dataset.

The Electoral road and address datasets will be available until May 2017 to allow users further time to transition.

Please refer to the NZ Roads Data Dictionary for detailed metadata and information about this layer.
