Broadly speaking, New Zealand has a good national infrastructure base bolstered by the expenditure on infrastructure in recent years to address historic underinvestment. But over the next 30 years we face some big challenges. The purpose of the Thirty Year New Zealand Infrastructure Plan 2015 is to help navigate our way through these challenges and grasp the opportunities they present.
To achieve this purpose, the Plan sets out a vision that: By 2045 New Zealand’s infrastructure will be resilient and coordinated, and contribute to a strong economy and high living standards.
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 has been developed by the National Infrastructure Unit with the National Infrastructure Advisory Board and working closely with government agencies, peak bodies and partner organisations across the local government and private sectors.
