Infrastructure New Zealand’s Submission on He Tūāpapa ki te Ora – Infrastructure for a Better Future

June 23, 2021

Kia ora,

Infrastructure Commission is consulting on the He Tūāpapa ki te Ore: Infrastructure for a Better Future. Feedback on the consultation document will inform the Draft Aotearoa New Zealand Infrastructure Strategy 2050, which the commission will submit to the Minister for Infrastructure in September 2021. The first edition of InfraRead which we published yesterday includes an article on this.

We hosted the commission at several workshops around the country, enabling members to directly provide feedback and influence the shape of the draft strategy.

Submissions on the consultation document close next Friday, 2 July. Infrastructure New Zealand’s submission was made yesterday. Our submission is divided into three parts:

(i) Setting the strategic context
(ii) Response to selected questions in the consultation document
(iii) Conclusion.

You will find our submission herehere. If your organisation is looking to make a submission, feel free to use content you may find useful.

If you have any questions or feedback (or if you would like a Word version of the submission), please feel free to contact Azeem at

In the meantime, we hope you are enjoying your read of the first edition of InfraRead.

Ngā mihi
