Infrastructure Priority List

The Infrastructure Priority List is a prioritised list of nationally significant investments. It provides decision makers with advice and guidance on specific infrastructure investments that will underpin Australia's continued prosperity.

The Priority List is a live document and is updated regularly on our website. Each year, however, we release a publication of the Priority List that includes summaries of each project and initiative:

The Priority List is made up of two broad groups:

  • Projects are infrastructure solutions to a defined problem or opportunity for which a full business case has been completed by the proponent and positively evaluated by Infrastructure Australia.
  • Initiatives are potential infrastructure problems / opportunities or ‘early stage’ solutions for which a business case has not yet been completed. Initiatives are identified through a collaborative process between proponents and Infrastructure Australia, using the Australian Infrastructure Audit and other data as evidence of infrastructure needs.

The investments outlined in the Priority List undergo a rigorous prioritisation process and are independently assessed by the Infrastructure Australia Board.

For more detailed information on the prioritisation process and how the Infrastructure Priority List is developed, please see the video below or consult our Assessment Framework.

The interactive map of the Infrastructure Priority List presents a detailed view of projects and initiatives, and allows you to see which infrastructure solutions from around the country have been positively evaluated.
