Infrastructure Priority List

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 investments outlined in the list undergo a rigorous prioritisation process and are independently assessed by Infrastructure Australia's Board. Information on the prioritisation process is available.

The Infrastructure Priority 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 nominators and Infrastructure Australia Board, using Infrastructure Australia Board's Audit and other data as evidence.

Initiatives and Projects which address major problems or opportunities of national significance are classified as high priority.
