About the National Infrastructure Unit (NIU)

The National Infrastructure Unit was established in 2009 to deliver the government’s objectives relating to infrastructure. The Unit is based within Treasury, and its responsibilities include:

  • Working across government and sector to develop a shared vision for infrastructure.
  • Providing support to, and acting as a secretariat for, the new National Infrastructure Advisory Board.
  • Vote Transport and communications
  • Support Minister for Infrastructure

The Unit does not duplicate the role of other infrastructure-related government agencies. It works in co-operation with other government agencies and takes a cross sector, high level view of New Zealand infrastructure.

The Unit develops its policy advice to infrastructure Ministers in close co-operation with the National Infrastructure Advisory Board
