The Infrastructure Australia priority list has been released with implications for both freight rail and passenger rail
The Australian government has welcomed the release of Infrastructure Australia’s 2021 update to its Infrastructure Priority List.
Deputy prime minister and infrastructure minister Michael McCormack said the Priority List coupled with Australia’s infrastructure-led economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The Priority List drew on 124 new submissions received since the last edition’s release in August 2020, highlighting a $59 billion pipeline of investments for nationally significant priorities across a range of sectors including transport, energy, water, communications, housing and education,” the deputy PM said.
“I am pleased to see a strong focus on economic development in regional communities.
“The Priority List helps inform future Australian Government investments as we continue to deliver on our 10-year, $110 billion infrastructure plan which is laying the foundations for economic recovery following the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Urban infrastructure minister Paul Fletcher said the Priority List informed all levels of government.
“The Government has already committed to many of the initiatives on the list,” Fletcher said.
