Christchurch: The Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) and Canterbury recovery agencies have designed a new tool to develop a shared view of horizontal infrastructure repair and built environment construction plans and projects. It provides a single, integrated view of forward works – with time frames, locations and other relevant information – by combining data from different authoritative sources.
The tool has been developed under the new Forward Works Spatial Coordination (FWSC) project. This enables decision makers to arrive at well-informed decisions and contribute to improved efficiencies in various recovery efforts. The tool is supposed to maximise the pace and efficiency of the built environment recovery, minimising costs and disruption due to scheduling clashes, and minimise impact on the transport network, and inconvenience to road users.
