Infrastructure investment

Transport is a major contributor to economic outcomes. The transport sector represents 4.4 percent of GDP, and almost half of Australia’s major infrastructure construction is undertaken within the transport sector.

Investment in and delivery of publicly owned transport infrastructure is the responsibility of all three levels of government. The Australian Government has committed over $75 billion for the next 10 years to transport infrastructure across Australia. This investment is assisting in building more liveable cities, enabling better-connected regional communities, driving key productivity improvements and creating safer roads.

NICS will continue to be updated as specific project information and commitments are announced by the Australian, state and territory governments.

Inland Rail is a once-in-a-generation project connecting regional Australia to domestic and international markets, transforming the way we move freight around the country. It will complete the ‘spine’ of the national freight network between Melbourne and Brisbane via regional Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. This new 1,700km line is the largest freight rail infrastructure project in Australia. It will connect our farms, mines, cities and ports to global markets and will support Australia’s four richest farming regions; provide supply chain benefits and substantial cost savings for producers. The Australian Government, through the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC), is delivering the multi-billion dollar infrastructure in partnership with the private sector. The Government has committed $8.4 billion to deliver Inland Rail, on top of the previously funded $900 million.

New South Wales Government

In February 2015, the NSW Government announced $50 million towards the major redevelopment of Macksville Hospital. The redevelopment is expected to enhance patient care at Macksville Hospital while also improving ambulatory care and outpatient treatments. The Local Health District is currently finalising the Clinical Services Plan (CSP). The CSP provides a roadmap for public health services in the region, and a guide for how services will be structured and organised in the future, at that facility.

An artist's impression of Western Sydney Airport

The Australian Government is investing up to $5.3 billion in Western Sydney Airport through the Government-owned company, WSA Co, which is responsible for building the airport. The airport is a transformational infrastructure project that will provide much needed additional aviation capacity to meet Sydney’s growing demand for air services. The project will also generate economic activity and provide employment opportunities closer to home for people in Western Sydney. Set to open in 2026, Stage 1 of the airport will have a single 3.7-kilometre runway, capable of handling the full range of domestic, international and freight aircraft, including the Airbus A380. Initially the airport will handle around 5 million annual passengers, growing to around 10 million annual passengers five years after opening—similar in size to Adelaide Airport today.

The Melbourne Metro Rail Project will create a new end-to-end rail line from Sunbury in the west to Cranbourne-Pakenham in the south-east, with high capacity trains and five new underground stations at Arden, Parkville, in the CBD and at Domain. Melbourne Metro’s twin nine-kilometre tunnels will take two of the busiest rail lines out of the City Loop, creating space for more trains to run more often across Melbourne’s rail network.
