Have your sayAotearoa 2050
What we've heard
Our roads, tunnels, bridges, railways, ports and airports help us to get around. In future we need to ensure that people and goods can get from place to place when needed.
It takes too long to get around our cities
It is too hard to access certain parts of the country
It is hard to use public transport in certain areas
It takes too long to build new transport options
It's expensive to move goods around the country
In 2050 moving around is faster and more reliable
It's taking longer to get from place to place and travel times are becoming more unpredictable. How should we make it easier, faster and more reliable to get around?
Enable people to live closer to their work
Make better use of the roads we have
Improve public transport
Build more roads
Reduce the need to travel
When making decisions about how we get around, what should we prioritise?
Drinking water, electricity, schools, hospitals and technology are all essential to our lives. We need a plan to get ahead and improve the things that are holding us back.
We are not using technology as well as we could
We can't afford houses where we want to live
We do not always have safe drinking water
We do not get good mobile & internet coverage everywhere
We have ageing schools and hospitals
In 2050 we have safe and reliable drinking water

Maintain the water networks we have
Invest in our water networks
Make better use of our water networks
Use technology to save water

Our smaller towns struggle to pay for infrastructure

Our key infrastructure is vulnerable to natural disasters
Our cities can't keep up with growth
Our lack of recycling means we create too much waste
