Implementation of the National Infrastructure Plan 2015

The National State of Infrastructure Report 2016 is the third annual "State of the Nation Report" the Treasury's National Infrastructure Unit (NIU) has prepared. Previous reports were published in 2012 and 2013. 

In the Thirty Year New Zealand Infrastructure Plan 2015 (the Plan), the Government committed to the Treasury's NIU reporting on the progress of the Plan through an annually published State of Infrastructure Report. The Plan was the first Infrastructure Plan to identify specific actions from central government, local government and the private sector that would be reported on. The publication is a joint NIU and National Infrastructure Advisory Board publication and provides an update one year on from the Plan.

The format of the report is similar to previous 2012 and 2013 reports and contains a separate page highlighting key achievements and challenges on each infrastructure sector and a report back on Auckland and Christchurch. The 2015 Plan contained Auckland and Christchurch overviews and, with the Canterbury rebuild and large growth in Auckland, New Zealand's largest city, there is a need to maintain a focus on these cities. 

This report also contains a report back on the eight key anchor items, which represent a shift in the new approach to infrastructure, outlined in the Plan and a report back on the identified action items in the 2015 Plan with the addition of new action items. Input on progress achieved against each action item has been provided by lead agencies.
