Infrastructure Australia has released its annual Infrastructure Priority List earlier this month, and the list contains 121 significant projects that will help build the nation - including eight high-priority and 10 priority projects as well as 29 high-priority 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.
On this post, we will cover the projects in South Australia included in the Infrastructure Priority List 2019.
