It was created on 1 December 2004 by the Land Transport Management Amendment Act 2004, was the successor entity to the disestablished Land Transport Safety Authority and Transfund New Zealand, and was disestablished from 31 July 2008, [cite web|title=Briefing for the incoming Minister of Transport|url=|publisher=Land Transport New Zealand|accessdate=2008-07-01] merging with Transit New Zealand to become the NZ Transport Agency.
