Thank you for your feedback and submissions in response to our Australian Infrastructure Audit (the Audit), released in May 2015.
Over the past few months, with the help of our stakeholder partners, we have held briefing events in every capital city across Australia to discuss the Audit findings and inform the development of our first Australian Infrastructure Plan (the Plan).
We have also been engaging with representatives from all levels of government, as well as business, industry, peak bodies and the wider community, encouraging feedback on the Audit and seeking public submissions on how to solve the issues and challenges raised by the Audit.
Submissions closed on 14 August 2015, and we are now using your submissions to help inform the Plan.
The 15 year Plan will be a strategic response to the issues identified in the Audit. It will address the key challenges raised by the Audit, and identify a range of investment and reform priorities to be implemented in the coming 15 years and beyond—to increase productivity, support economic growth and protect and enhance Australia's quality of life.
The Plan will be completed by the end of this year, and will be updated at least every five years.

Under the Infrastructure Australia Act 2008, Infrastructure Australia has responsibility to strategically audit Australia's nationally significant infrastructure, and develop 15 year rolling infrastructure plans that clearly identify the priorities for progressing nationally significant infrastructure.
Infrastructure Australia's landmark Australian Infrastructure Audit, released on 22 May 2015, provides the evidence base for the current development of our first Australian Infrastructure Plan to be completed by the end of 2015.
