The Australian Government is investing $110 billion over 10 years from 2021-22 in transport infrastructure across Australia through its 10-year rolling infrastructure pipeline, of which a substantial component is under the Infrastructure Investment Program. The Infrastructure Investment Program assists in delivering on the Australian Government’s economic plan for a stronger and more resilient Australia, meeting the national freight challenge and getting Australians home sooner and safer. This longer-term commitment is providing certainty of a rolling program of investments that allows industry to retain skills and plan resources.
The Infrastructure Investment Program is aimed at improving the productivity of Australia’s land transport networks. The Australian Government’s investments are based on long-term planning, and robust project identification and selection processes, to achieve the best outcomes for the national economy. It is designed to ensure that Australia’s national land transport system is increasingly better placed to meet future challenges.
