The establishment Infrastructure NT gives effect to the Territory Economic Reconstruction Commission’s recommendation to establish a strategic infrastructure planning and development function that plans for, coordinates and aligns infrastructure needs with industry and population growth.
Infrastructure Australia CEO Romilly Madew AO, said the establishment of Infrastructure NT and the Infrastructure Commissioner is an exciting milestone for the Northern Territory.
“As one of the Territory Economic Reconstruction Commissioners, my colleagues and I on the Commission highlighted the benefit of a Northern Territory infrastructure body, representing all of the Territory’s infrastructure interests nationally, would have in supporting economic development and growth.”
“I congratulate the NT Government’s commitment to making this happen in 2021, and I look forward to working with the Commissioner of Infrastructure NT to identify and champion opportunities for investment and reform to drive the Territory’s future growth.
“Infrastructure Australia is very proud of our close and collaborative relationship with infrastructure bodies around the country, and we are very pleased to welcome Infrastructure NT into this group.”
