NZ needs more skilled in large infrastructure projects - CRL review

From Morning Report, 6:50 am on 25 August 2023

New Zealand has a shortage of people who are skilled and experienced in delivering large scale, complex infrastructure projects.

This was a key finding in a review - released this morning - of Auckland's City Rail Link project.

The New Zealand Infrastructure Commission, Te Waihanga, commissioned the review in preparation for more major transport projects in coming years.

Te Waihanga's general manager of infrastructure delivery Blake Lepper spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.
