The Australian Government is investing in major land transport infrastructure across Australia through its Infrastructure Investment Program.

Across the program, the Government has committed to upgrading key freight routes in the regions, reducing traffic congestion in cities, developing high speed rail, improving road safety, and empowering local councils to support projects which matter to local communities.

The Budget also takes an important step to make our infrastructure pipeline more sustainable and to ensure we don’t further strain a sector already facing labour constraints, inflationary pressures and cost increases due to supply chain challenges.

The Government is working closely with State and Territory Governments to achieve these objectives and deliver a sustainable infrastructure pipeline.
