Infrastructure

Targeted and consistent investment in infrastructure is vital to the economy. The provision of infrastructure plays a significant role in ensuring ensures economic growth, jobs and productivity. 

Investment can be improved by the following: 

  • New and innovative finance options must be sourced to ensure infrastructure delivery is sustainable 
  • There must be a streamlined framework that has a whole of government, one-stop-shop, approach for infrastructure delivery, including a central procurement agency 
  • Government and industry must work in partnership on major infrastructure projects and reach out to communities to ensure delivery of projects, while providing cost savings and superior outcomes

Construction materials are the largest cost component of infrastructure projects and our industry must be recognised in planning frameworks to ensure efficient infrastructure delivery.
