Infrastructure New Zealand launched

The New Zealand Council for Infrastructure Development (NZCID) has relaunched as Infrastructure New Zealand.

Stephen Selwood will remain the chief executive officer of the infrastructure advocacy body which advocates for PPPs.

 Selwood said "Infrastructure New Zealand better reflects the wide range of priorities facing the organisation today, including transport funding, project procurement and regional governance and planning reform”.

Infrastructure New Zealand’s immediate priorities are;

  • The need for reform of our planning laws and institutions to better align infrastructure planning, funding and delivery
  • The need to shift to road pricing to fund much needed transport investment and manage traffic demand more effectively
  • Lifting procurement capability across the industry
  • Accelerating the use of private capital to deliver better outcomes across the sector
