The Infrastructure Priority List is a prioritised list of nationally significant investments. It provides decision makers with advice and guidance on specific infrastructure investments that will underpin Australia's continued prosperity.
The List is updated regularly and is made up of two broad groups:
Projects are potential infrastructure solutions for which a full business case has been completed by the proponent and positively assessed by the Infrastructure Australia Board.
Initiatives are potential infrastructure solutions for which a business case has not yet been completed. Initiatives are identified through a collaborative process between proponents and Infrastructure Australia Board, using Infrastructure Australia Board's Audit and other data as evidence.
The investments outlined in the list undergo a rigorous prioritisation process and are independently assessed by Infrastructure Australia's Board.
For more detailed information on the prioritisation process and how the Infrastructure Priority List is developed, please see the video below or consult our Assessment Framework.
