Projects

Posted by Monica Gameng

Infrastructure Australia has released its annual Infrastructure Priority List in late February and it highlighted approximately $58 billion worth of nationally significant projects and initiatives. This year’s list contains six high priority projects, 17 priority projects, 36 high priority initiatives and 88 priority initiatives as well as 37 new infrastructure proposals.

High priority and priority projects are advanced proposals that already have a full business case and have been assessed by Infrastructure Australia as capable of addressing a nationally significant problem or opportunity.

On the other hand, high priority and priority initiatives are projects that have been determined by Infrastructure Australia to have potential to address a nationally significant problem or opportunity.

Up next on our 2020 Infrastructure Priority List series are projects and initiatives for the state of Western Australia.
