Australian Infrastructure’s 15-year Plan

2-21-2

The Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA), Consult Australia and the Property Council of Australia (PCA) have all welcomed the country’s first Australian Infrastructure Plan that sets out the infrastructure challenges over the next 15 years and provides a clear roadmap towards more resilient and liveable cities.

Setting out 78 recommendations for reform to address infrastructure gaps, the Plan prioritises projects that primarily target urban congestion and national connectivity, among many more projects for water security, sewerage infrastructure upgrades, flood mitigation and investment in remote infrastructure. This infrastructure priority list examines Australia’s infrastructure deficit by addressing both ready-to-go projects as well as proposals that are at the concept stage.

GBCA’s Chief Executive Officer, Romilly Madew observes that the growth of Australian cities has led to congestion with the associated costs and loss of productivity. According to Infrastructure Australia, the cost of congestion is expected to rise to $53 billion a year by 2031 without significant investment. However, the newly released Plan will provide the roadmap to kick-start this investment. Madew says investment in active and public transport options is being considered for the cities, helping reduce congestion, cut greenhouse gas emissions and improve overall health and wellbeing.
