Posted by Monica Gameng

The Infrastructure Priority List 2019 has been released by Infrastructure Australia and it contains 121 vital infrastructure projects that will contribute to the growth of the nation. The list contains eight high-priority project, 10 priority projects, 29 high-priority initiatives and 74 priority initiatives.

High-priority and priority project 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.

Continuing on our Infrastructure Priority List 2019 series of posts, today we will cover the projects in Queensland included in the list.
