**Please read:** This comprehensive roads dataset includes eight data tables and eleven lookup tables. The dataset has been sourced from LINZ’s NZ Roads database, a database for the management of national roads, including those managed for addressing purposes.
The centrelines within this set are required to indicate the presence of an authoritative road name. 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 set of normalised tables replaces the Landonline: Road Centre Line layer and the Landonline: Road Name and Landonline: Road Name Association tables.
For a simplified version of the data contained within these tables see [NZ Roads (Addressing)](https://data.linz.govt.nz/layer/53382), which aggregates geometries based on road name, and [NZ Roads Subsections (Addressing)](https://data.linz.govt.nz/layer/53383), which holds the individual geometries.
Please refer to the [NZ Roads Data Dictionary](https://data.linz.govt.nz/document/12628) for detailed metadata and information about this set.
Sourced from the Landonline database system which was made operational in 2001, maintained in the NZ Roads database from November 2016.
