Australian Infrastructure Plan

The first Australian Infrastructure Plan provides a positive reform and investment roadmap for Australia.  The Plan sets out the infrastructure challenges and opportunities Australia faces over the next 15 years and the solutions required to drive productivity growth, maintain and enhance our standard of living, and ensures our cities remain world class.

Our Plan sets out 78 recommendations for reform and is designed to address today's infrastructure gaps, and set us up to meet the challenges of tomorrow.

In developing the Plan, we have prioritised the user—the commuter waiting for a train, the family paying their electricity bill and the business looking to capitalise on overseas markets.

If the Plan is delivered, Australians can expect more affordable, innovative and competitive energy, telecommunications, water and transport services.

Alongside the Plan is IA's reinvigorated Infrastructure Priority List (IPL) which identifies potential infrastructure solutions for investment over the next 15 years. It will be updated regularly throughout each year.

The Plan was developed following consultation on the Australian Infrastructure Audit report. Infrastructure Australia will update the Plan at least every five years.
