All briefs on projects assessed by Infrastructure Australia (IA) since September 2014 are published below, as required by the amended Infrastructure Australia Act 2008.

Briefs for projects that were assessed as ‘threshold' or ‘ready to proceed' from 2011 to September 2014 are also provided below. This reflects past practice.
