Building the infrastructure of the future
Delivering a sustainable infrastructure program
This Budget builds on the Government's $178 billion investment in infrastructure projects between 2011-12 to 2020-21 with a record $112.7 billion investment in infrastructure over the next four years. This includes $76.7 billion for transformative transport infrastructure, $11.2 billion to deliver world class healthcare facilities and $9.1 billion for new and upgraded schools and other education infrastructure. The Government remains committed to delivering our forward pipeline of road, rail, health, precinct renewal and other projects.
While the past two years have presented significant challenges for infrastructure delivery including the impacts of COVID-19, heightened geopolitical tensions and the impact of natural disasters, the Government will ensure the right projects are delivered at the appropriate time and at the best value to taxpayers, having regard to ongoing market constraints.
