2021-22 Budget

The Australian Government’s 10-year infrastructure program is supporting jobs, driving growth and helping to build Australia’s way back from the COVID-19 pandemic.

This $110 billion investment forms part of our National Economic Recovery Plan and will secure Australia’s world-leading economic recovery by delivering nation-building infrastructure projects, meeting our national freight challenge and getting Australians home sooner and safer.

This includes an additional $15.2 billion in new project funding through the 2021–22 Budget, supporting an estimated 30,000 jobs across every State and Territory.

Through the 2021-22 Budget the Australian Government has committed an additional $1 billion to the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program, bringing the total commitment to $2.5 billion.

The Australian Government has also committed $1 billion to the now $3 billion Road Safety Program as part of the ongoing commitment to improving road safety for all Australians and reducing the number of deaths and serious injuries on our roads.
