The New Zealand Infrastructure Commission has released He Tūāpapa ki te Ora, Infrastructure for a Better Future, setting out the approach New Zealand is taking to develop it's Infrastructure Strategy.
The Commission has identified areas where action is needed to achieve the 2050 vision - that infrastructure lays the foundation for the people, places and businesses of Aotearoa New Zealand to thrive for generations - and options to achieve that vision. The Commission is seeking feedback on how it can improve its infrastructure system and use those ideas to draft an Infrastructure Strategy.
As part of the consultation document released, the government wants to accelerate investigations on the use of Digital Twins and prepare for a nation-wide Digital twin.
