Australian Infrastructure Audit
The Australian Infrastructure Audit takes a strategic approach to assessing our nation's infrastructure needs. It examines the drivers of future infrastructure demand, particularly population and economic growth.
The Audit provides a top-down assessment of the value-add, or Direct Economic Contribution of infrastructure; considers the future demand for infrastructure over the next 15 years, and delivers an evidence base for further gap analysis, long term planning and future investment priorities.
The Australian Infrastructure Audit has found that without action Australia's productivity and quality of life will be tested, with population and economic growth set to cause increasing congestion and bottlenecks.
Major reforms are needed to improve the way we plan, finance, construct, maintain and operate infrastructure to ensure it can underpin gains in Australia's productivity in the decades ahead, and contribute to economic growth.
