Earlier this month, Infrastructure Australia released its annual Infrastructure Priority List and it contains 121 nationally significant 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.
Next on our Infrastructure Priority List 2019 series of posts will cover the projects in Western Australia.
