Whanake i ngā Pou Tarāwaho o te Hapori

Investing in infrastructure

The 10 year plan proposes investing in high-quality infrastructure to help our people move around the city, access basic services – like water, and enjoy our community facilities.

Our 10 year plan is supported by the proposed Infrastructure Strategy 2021-2051 – ensuring we have sustainable water and transport infrastructure over the long term. More details on the strategy are in the Draft Long Term Plan.

What we’re proposing

Ngā Pou Tarāwaho o Ngā Wai e Toru

Three waters

Option 1 (preferred)

Option 2

Invest $582M in Three Waters infrastructure.

Increased funding means:
  • reduced risk of water outages or things breaking
  • having the infrastructure we need for a growing city
  • improved water conservation
  • healthier waterways
  • less carbon emissions.
Invest less in Three Waters.

This means it’s likely we’ll have:
  • more service disruptions
  • less sustainable water supply
  • less-healthy waterways
  • carbon emissions won’t reduce much.

Ngā Waka

Transport

Option 1 (preferred)

Option 2

Invest $353M in transport infrastructure.

Increased funding means:
  • undertaking transformative projects like Cross Valley Transport Connections, and the Eastern Bays Shared Path
  • encouraging people to use micro-mobility modes of transport (eg electric scooters, e-bikes or skateboards)
  • fixing up footpaths and roads
  • traffic safety improvements to intersections and routes to protect pedestrians and road users
  • seismic strengthening of the Cuba Street Bridge.
Investing less in transport means:
  • delayed work on transformative projects
  • fixing footpaths and roads only when they fail
  • delayed traffic safety work.

Te Puna Wai o Te Ngaengae

Naenae Pool

Option 1 (preferred)

Option 2

Invest up to $68M to build a similar facility and services as the existing pool and include sustainable technology to reduce future operating costs and its impact on the environment.
Build Naenae Pool with a lower level of facility and services.

Te Wāpu o Pito-one

Petone Wharf

Option 1 (preferred)

Option 2

Bring forward the $15-$20M investment from 2032 to begin in 2021 to do a full refurbishment of Petone Wharf including demolishing part of the head. It will require a longer period of closure (approximately two years) in the short term but shorter and less closures in the long term.
Invest $0.7M to undertake required maintenance and delay a full refurbishment of the wharf until 2032.
