Infrastructure investment

Record investment in infrastructure projects

The NSW Government has recently invested a record A$87.2 billion in infrastructure projects — the most of any Australian state or territory. This includes developing new rail, road and air links, as well as upgrading existing infrastructure such as hospitals, schools and stadiums to better service the state’s growing economy and population base.

You’ll notice the amount of construction going on in Sydney when you see the city skyline dotted with cranes. In fact, there are more cranes right here than anywhere else in Australia.

Significant infrastructure projects

A new A$8.4 billion inland rail network will soon move freight between Queensland and Southern Australia and better connect NSW and Sydney to the cities of Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.

NSW is set to capitalise on the growing economy and population. The state government has committed A$87.2 billion to specific projects over the next 20 years.

We are actively looking for investment in many of these projects. There are a number of key projects under development as per our Infrastructure Pipeline.
