Infrastructure Australia adds new projects to national infrastructure priority list

Infrastructure Australia has updated its Infrastructure Priority List to include four additional projects that address Australia's current infrastructure gaps and meet the challenges of the future.

Infrastructure Australia Chief Executive Philip Davies said its Board had positively assessed business cases for the following four projects:

  • M80 Ring Road Upgrade (Victoria) – High Priority Project
  • Perth-Forrestfield Airport Rail Link (Western Australia) – Priority Project
  • Moorebank Intermodal Terminal (New South Wales) – Priority Project
  • Adelaide-Tarcoola Rail Upgrade (South Australia) – Priority Project

“Adding these projects to our Infrastructure Priority List demonstrates that they are sound investments that have the potential to address some of the nation's key infrastructure challenges, such as urban congestion and the need to improve national freight connectivity,” Mr Davies said.

The Infrastructure Priority List identifies nationally significant projects and initiatives in every state and territory. The list is regularly updated as the Infrastructure Australia Board receives and assesses new business cases from project proponents.
