What does Resilient infrastructure mean to you?

about 2 years ago

We are working to make sure that if our region is affected by a major earthquake, flood, or slips that we are able to cope and continue to deliver the services our communities expect.

This means having robust infrastructure so we can continue to supply freshwater to your local council for the drinking supply, continuing to provide public transport or useful alternatives after an event and that the homes and communities across the region are protected from and aware of the impact of flooding.

It's important to us that the region feels confident that we can cope in an emergency - do you have thoughts on how we are doing on this?  Please let us know below.

Kia ora, thanks for your interest. This project closed 30 April 2018.

    Two sentences in the relevant section of the LTP stand out for me:GWRC will continue to provide broadly the current service level for public transport assets with some minor, progressive improvements to asset quality, condition and accessibility. (p73)Increased travel demand to be offset by planned roading improvements resulting in little impact on PT demand. (p74)These are stunningly unambitious. While there are major plans to increase and improve roading assets, GWRC is planning nothing substantial for PT - increased roading will accommodate all increases in demand. This is clearly in conflict with LGWM's objectives, and must be changed to reflect the need in reduce (not increase) dependence on the private car, and to increase (not reduce) PT and active transport use, both in absolute and mode-share terms.

    We desperately need progress on the Petone to Grenada link road - both from a day to day commuting aspect as well as an alternative to SH 2 if there are any issues such as damage or accidents

    Infrastructure that works or can be quickly restored after an earthquake. Infrastructure that meets the needs of an ageing population.
