They promised construction, and after four years just a concept!

The ODT reports:

Newly released concept design images of the new Dunedin Hospital have given another glimpse of what the $1.4 billion project may finally look like.

Health Minister Andrew Little revealed the designs on Thursday and said the drawings were indicative only, with changes likely, especially to the facade.

“Concept design approval and the release of a tender for early contractor engagement are scheduled for next week,” he said.

Ardern’s promise in the 2017 campaign was for construction to have started by 2020. Instead they are not even past the concept stage! They won’t even be putting it out to tender until late 2021, so actual construction won’t start until 2022 or 2023.
