    There's a lot of uncertainty facing the country's shovel-ready projects

    There's a lot of uncertainty facing the country's shovel-ready projects


    It's been revealed the 12 infrastructure projects, costing 240-million of the Government's latest three billion dollar post-Covid infrastructure spend, won't start till next year.

    Regional Development Minister Shane Jones says they're doing all they can to ensure these projects are successful.

    He says if these projects aren't underway in 12 months, they will either need to be reassessed or disappear.
