Outcome 2

In 2020/21 the output of this outcome was the Infrastructure Pipeline.

Outcome: The construction sector has a clear forward works programme which the sector can rely on

Indicator 1
There is an improved flow to market of major projects and demand can more readily be met by supply – including by international players.
Indicator 2
The Infrastructure Pipeline is considered the trusted source for information; it is the ‘go-to’ place.
Indicator 3
There is improved visibility of regional investment pipelines.

Te Waihanga has taken the following actions:

  • Increased our collection of data and added new filters to the Infrastructure Pipeline tool that allow users to search based on funding status, procurement type and tags.
  • Added data from Crown Infrastructure Partners on the ‘shovel ready’ initiative. This data includes 207 shovel-ready projects worth NZD$3.4 billion.
  • Developed draft interactive visual dashboards to provide users with new ways of accessing the Infrastructure Pipeline data.
  • Undertaken the procurement of a data-translation tool to help on-board and maintain disparate data sources.
  • Worked with Immigration New Zealand on using the Infrastructure Pipeline as the approved list of major infrastructure projects.
