Principles for Innovative Financing

On 17 February 2016, Minister for Major Projects, the Hon Paul Fletcher MP, released the Australian Government's Principles for Innovative Financing (the Principles) to support the use of innovative financing in the delivery of critical transport infrastructure.

The Principles set out the Australian Government's goals for its substantial investment in Australia's land transport infrastructure and its expectations on how projects are selected and alternative funding and financing decisions are considered.

The Government will continue to work with state and territory jurisdictions to ensure these principles are put into practice when developing, prioritising and delivering the infrastructure Australia needs.
