Infrastructure New Zealand is New Zealand's peak infrastructure body.

Infrastructure New Zealand promotes best practice in national infrastructure development through research, advocacy and public and private sector collaboration. Members come from diverse sectors across New Zealand, equity owners, service providers, public sector agencies, and major infrastructure users.

Together we share a clear purpose; world class infrastructure for the benefit of all New Zealanders.


 Since its inception, the Infrastructure New Zealand has done an amazing job highlighting the need for good infrastructure and the importance it has on economic prosperity and providing a quality environment for New Zealanders.  

- Graham Darlow, Former Chief Executive Officer, The Fletcher Construction Company

 The Facts

World class infrastructure is central to our standard of living. The supply of water, energy, transportation, communications and social infrastructure underpin the quality of our health, education, agriculture, trade and commerce, personal safety and security, culture and entertainment.

Despite recent increases in infrastructure spending, New Zealand is lagging behind other OECD nations in redressing its infrastructure backlog. The latest IMD and World Economic Forum Global Competitive reports consistently show infrastructure constraints as major impediments to New Zealand’s social, economic and environmental development.

Four key challenges need to be addressed to provide for the essential national and regional infrastructure development that is so needed across New Zealand:

 Strong leadership and effective governance across and within infrastructure sectors

 Provision of coordinated long-term and national infrastructure development strategies  

 Reform of complex regulatory and environmental approval processes to recognise the
importance of strategic infrastructure investment, and 

 Appropriate use of public and private sector debt as a means to finance infrastructure
investment opportunities

 Who is Infrastructure New Zealand?

Infrastructure New Zealand is supported by a board  of 12 board members all of whom are industry leaders in their professional fields, assisted by a small, dedicated Head Office team.
