2018 Infrastructure Priority list Launch

On 27 March 2018 Infrastructure Australia (IA) launched the 2018 Infrastructure Priority List, outlining a prioritised list of national infrastructure investments totalling $55 billion. Following the Tasmanian Government’s submission of infrastructure priorities to IA in October 2017, the following Tasmanian projects were included in the Priority List:

  • Hobart Science and Technology (STEM) Precinct
  • Derwent River Crossing Capacity (Bridgewater Bridge)
  • Burnie to Hobart Freight Corridor Strategy
  • Tasmanian Sewerage Infrastructure Upgrades
  • Second Bass Strait Interconnector

A range of activities are underway to support the bringing of these projects to fruition.

Submission to Infrastructure Australia

Infrastructure Australia (IA) is updating its Infrastructure Priority List and has called on Australian governments and non-government bodies to identify infrastructure problems and opportunities of national significance.

Infrastructure Tasmania has coordinated the Tasmanian Government’s submission to IA which includes an update on each of the existing Tasmanian initiatives and projects on the Priority List and also proposes three new Tasmanian initiatives for inclusion on the next edition of the Priority List.

Infrastructure Australia has indicated the next edition of its Infrastructure Priority List will be published in February 2018.
