Road and rail rebuild
Regular updates on the from the North Canterbury Transport Infrastructure Recovery alliance
How does this fit with the Recovery Plan?
Recovery Plan Goal: Build cost-effective and easily accessible infrastructure, transport networks, housing and buildings which are able to withstand extreme weather events, flooding, tsunamis, earthquakes and landslides.
How we'll achieve it
Reconnect road and rail: Work with partners to ensure the state highway and rail network are re-established as quickly as possible and include resilience to future natural hazards, and recognise the need to support safety and the
recovery of the tourism and visitor economy.
Repair essential infrastructure: Repair essential infrastructure such as water, sewer and electricity networks in ways that are more resilient and future-proofed for growth.
Restore heritage and cultural sites: Encourage the repair/restoration and viable future use of character/heritage buildings and sites, including working with building owners and supporting funding applications where applicable.
Revitalize township: Work with the community to develop plans for the Kaikōura Town Centre, Esplanade, North Wharf and South Bay areas to identify priorities and help deliver on community aspirations for these
areas such as seating, BBQs, public toilets, pathways and improved
accessibility for all ages and abilities.
