Earlier this month, Infrastructure Australia released its annual Infrastructure Priority List that shows the vital infrastructure that will help build the nation. The list currently contains 121 projects including eight  high-priority projects, 10 priority projects, 29 high-priority initiatives and 74 priority initiatives.

High-priority and priority projects are projects that have a full business case completed and positively assessed by the Infrastructure Australia Board, while high-priority and priority initiatives are projects that have not yet completed a full business case and are subject to a rigorous assessment.

In this post, we will be listing down the all the projects in New South Wales included in the Infrastructure Priority List 2019.
