Letter from INZ to Incoming Prime Minister: Getting New Zealand’s Infrastructure Back on Track

As we all wait for the final form of the new government, Infrastructure New Zealand (INZ) Chair Tracey Ryan and I have taken the opportunity to write to the new Prime Minister elect, Christopher Luxon, to alert him to the urgency that is needed to address New Zealand’s infrastructure issues.   

We are proposing that INZ partners with the new government to co-host an Uplift New Zealand Forum to be held prior to Christmas. This Forum would demonstrate a public commitment to faster and better delivery of infrastructure projects. The purpose of the event would be to name and frame the key issues that can be dealt with at pace, while setting a medium-to-long term timeline for the changes and improvements required.

INZ is pleased to finally see some tangible progress in the climate adaptation space. The delay in the development of the third component of the resource management legislation suite has meant that some of the lessons from the extreme weather events experienced in early 2023 can be applied. Aotearoa now has a real sense of the size, scale and urgency of the potential climate impact on our communities and regions.

Infrastructure New Zealand responds to Budget 2023
