Infrastructure Priority List 2018: Project and Initiative summaries

Publication Date
26 March 2018

The Infrastructure Priority List is a critical reference point for the most important infrastructure investments Australia needs over the next 15 years.

Each year we refresh all the proposals on the Priority List with new data and add new projects and initiatives. This is summarised in a report released in the first quarter of each year. We also continue to add new proposals to the Priority List as we assess business cases throughout the year.

The 2019 Infrastructure Priority List is the largest, most comprehensive and most diverse list of investments identified by Infrastructure Australia to meet the challenges of the future. It identified a record 121 nationally significant infrastructure proposals, with 8 High Priority Projects, 10 Priority Projects, 29 High Priority Initiatives and 74 Priority Initiatives. This provides all levels of government with an evidence‑based list of infrastructure investment opportunities for the near, medium and longer term.

The Infrastructure Priority List is a live document that is regularly updated. Further additions to the List will be available in the online Infrastructure Priority List.

This year, we have developed an interactive map for the Infrastructure Priority List. The map presents a detailed view of projects and initiatives, and allows you to see which infrastructure solutions from around the country are on the List.
