COMMENT:

The Prime Minister's Business Advisory Council has warned Jacinda Ardern that New Zealand is at an "infrastructure crisis point".

The warning came in a June 26 letter to Ardern — released to this columnist — where the council said New Zealand lacks a "national masterplan" to tangibly map out "our immediate, medium and long-term infrastructure future in an integrated way".

The Business Advisory Council, chaired by Air New Zealand chief executive Christopher Luxon, has presented a damning indictment of New Zealand's infrastructure regime saying there is "no overarching vision or leadership in New Zealand for infrastructure development".
