COVID-19 recovery permitted activity guidance

Published: | Category: Rail safety , COVID-19 , Guidance for specialists | Audience: Rail participants

The intent of the COVID-19 Recovery (Fast-Track Consenting) Act 2020 (Act) is to support New Zealand’s recovery from the economic and social impacts of COVID-19 and ongoing investment across New Zealand, while promoting the sustainable management of natural and physical resources.

Provided that various criteria are met, the Act enables certain Waka Kotahi and KiwiRail projects relating to the operation, replacement, maintenance and minor upgrade of existing infrastructure to be considered a permitted activity, thereby avoiding the requirement for resource consent.

Waka Kotahi and KiwiRail have prepared the following guidance for staff and contractors to assist with implementation of these provisions.
