Key projects

Australia's national and regional productivity and economic opportunities are dependent on the delivery of strong transport networks. The Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics (BITRE) estimates put the cost of congestion in Australia's capital cities at $25 billion per year, projected to reach $40 billion by 2030.

The Australian Government is investing $100 billion in infrastructure over the next 10 years of our rolling program to get Australians home sooner and safer. This includes an additional $23 billion of new funding in the 2019-20 Budget to bust congestion, better connect our regions, improve safety on our roads, and meet our national freight challenge.
