NZ Roads: Road Section
**Please read:** This is the Road Section table, which is part of the [set of NZ Roads tables](https://data.linz.govt.nz/set/88).
The Road Section table holds an identifier to group related geometries along a road. The data model allows for multiple geometries for a single road section. Road sections are broken at changes in the road network, e.g. intersections, changes in road name and road construction, and at locations where address ranges reset.
The NZ 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. This set of normalised tables replaces the Landonline: Road Centre Line layer and the Landonline: Road Name and Landonline: Road Name Association tables currently published on LDS.
These centrelines are required to indicate the presence of an authoritative road name. Named centrelines are not intended to represent the exact location of a road formation. Named centrelines do not indicate the presence of legal access.
For a simplified version of the data contained within these tables see [NZ Roads (Addressing)](https://data.linz.govt.nz/layer/3382), which aggregates geometries based on road name, and [NZ Roads Subsections (Addressing)](https://data.linz.govt.nz/layer/3383), which holds the individual geometries.
Please refer to the [NZ Roads Data Dictionary](https://data.linz.govt.nz/document/1628) for detailed metadata and information about this layer.
This table is part of a set of related data tables and associated look-up tables and provides more complex road information designed for advanced applications.
