Further details on what is required under the Framework is available here.

The National Partnership Agreement on Land Transport Infrastructure Projects requires funding recipients to provide a Project Proposal Report (PPR), which sets out the information required for projects, consistent with the guidance in the Notes on Administration. Templates for these reports are available here.

The Department’s cost estimation guidance outlines the principles that are expected to be followed by proponents in preparing cost estimates accompanying Project Proposal Reports.

The RPM system is designed to manage the Australian Government's Infrastructure Investment Program.

The Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) Program, funded by the Australian Government, aims to protect and create jobs through stimulating additional infrastructure and roads construction within local councils.

Nominations for Black Spot locations are invited from state and territory governments, local councils, community groups and associations, road user groups, industry and individuals.
