Infrastructure Tasmania

Infrastructure Tasmania (ITas) was created to provide a coordinated, state-wide approach to the planning and delivery of infrastructure in Tasmania, including rail, major roads, energy, ports and water and sewerage.

Its objective is to ensure the right infrastructure is built at the right time, in the right place, and as efficiently as possible to support productivity, economic growth and community amenity.

ITas assesses and prioritises all major publicly funded infrastructure investment proposals, and provides independent and objective advice about proposals to the Minister for Infrastructure and the Treasurer. ITas is also responsible for coordinating all major infrastructure funding submissions to the Tasmanian and Australian Governments.

ITas is led by CEO, Allan Garcia, who has significant experience in government relations, policy development and implementation.

The ITas Priority Work Program for 2015-16 (Adobe PDF) (MS Word) focuses on strategic investment in infrastructure, efficient transport and an effective freight network, to create jobs, boost productivity and encourage economic development.

Outcomes from the 2015-16 work program include the State Roads Audit 2016, Draft Freight Strategy, Review of a proposed light rail system in Hobart, and Bridgewater Bridge Review.

ITas will release its annual work plan for 2016-17 in June 2016.
