What is infrastructure investment?

Infrastructure investment assists national and regional economic and social development by the provision of funding aimed at improving the performance of land transport infrastructure.

The Australian Government is investing $100 billion over 10 years from 2019-20 through its rolling infrastructure plan to help manage our growing population, meet our national freight challenge and get Australians home sooner and safer. This includes an additional $23 billion of new funding in the 2019–20 Budget for new projects and initiatives that will benefit every state and territory and provide local job opportunities.

Through the 2019-20 Budget, we are investing an additional $2.2 billion through the new Local and State Government Road Safety Package to improve safety on our roads, including directly targeting our worst accident zones.
