Thirty Year New Zealand Infrastructure Plan 2015

By 2045 New Zealand’s infrastructure will be resilient and coordinated, and contribute to a strong economy and high living standards.

That is the vision set out in the Thirty Year New Zealand Infrastructure Plan

Delivering on this vision requires New Zealand to make a step-change in our approach to infrastructure planning, delivery, management and use.  We need a better understanding of the levels of service we want to deliver, more mature asset management practices and use of data, and more effective decision-making that considers non-asset solutions.

The 2015 Plan includes a comprehensive suite of actions that will be undertaken to deliver on the new approach and drive the two outcomes sought from the Plan – the better use of existing infrastructure and the better allocation of new investment.

The Plan was developed by the National Infrastructure Unit and the National Infrastructure Advisory Board, working closely with government agencies, peak bodies and partner organisations across the local government and private sectors.

This is the third Plan. The first, in 2010, provided short-term priorities for infrastructure investment and regulatory reform. The second edition (2011) set out a vision, principles and goals to provide an ‘operating framework’ for infrastructure decision-makers.
