New Zealand First recognizes that the building of this country will never stop, and when it does stop it results in long term issues that negatively affect all of New Zealand. Cost or lack of private investment is not an excuse for the lack of infrastructure works that take place in our country. Failure to build roads, rail, airports, housing and power plants is detrimental to the long term prosperity of this nation. New Zealand First will continue to build this country to ensure we do not play a game of catch-up, but instead play the game of staying ahead.
