Expenses and capital expenditure incurred without appropriation or outside scope or period

Reinstatement of South Island State Highway 1

Funding for the rebuild of State Highway 1 following the November 2016 earthquake was appropriated as capital expenditure of $69 million. On closer examination and after consultation with NZ Transport Agency and the Treasury, some of the 2016/17 costs were determined to be operating expenses. The actual 2016/17 operating costs were $73 million, and capital costs were $20 million, which in total was higher than originally forecast. Appropriations for future years have been re-examined and split between operating and capital on the correct basis.

Main North Line reinstatement

The rebuild of the Main North Line following the November 2016 earthquake was expected to be largely funded by KiwiRail’s insurers. Cabinet had provided a tagged capital contingency to fund expenditure not covered by insurance but the request by KiwiRail for funding in 2016/17 was received too late for inclusion in the Supplementary Estimates for 2016/17, and so must be declared as unappropriated.
