Government Announces the Shovel-Ready Projects

What does shovel-ready mean?

On the 18th of August 2020 the government announced 147 shovel-ready projects with a total funding value of NZ $2.3 billion. This comprehensive list of  projects was release by the Infrastructure Industry Reference Group and are considered ‘shovel-ready’, but what does that mean?

All shovel-ready projects are physical works that are able to start within a year– this means these projects are not new initiatives, instead they’re projects already conceived that have now been given an extra boost to get going.
