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 Infrastructure Priority List is a live document and is updated regularly. Each year, however, we publish a static version of the Priority List that includes summaries of the projects and initiatives included:

Projects are potential infrastructure solution to a defined problem or opportunity for which a full business case has been completed by the proponent and positively assessed by Infrastructure Australia.
Initiatives are potential infrastructure problems 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 2015 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.
