Initiatives

The Australian Government has an Infrastructure Investment Program (IIP) aimed at improving the productivity of Australia's land transport networks. This includes increasing the capacity of our regions and major cities by connecting people and products to employment and markets safely and efficiently. 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 and regional and urban communities. It is designed to ensure that Australia's national land transport system is increasingly better placed to meet future challenges

Initiatives under the IIP that target specific policy issues include the Urban Congestion Fund, Fast Rail and the Roads of Strategic Importance initiative.

Other infrastructure investment initiatives not under the IIP include Australian Rail Track Corporation—a public company owned by the Australian Government to develop and manage the interstate freight rail track—and the Moorebank Intermodal Terminal Project.
