The Australian Government will be investing more than $75 billion towards the delivery of significant transport infrastructure across Australia through a 10-year project pipeline. The funding also includes approximately $24.5 billion for initiatives and projects that will improve lives in every State and Territory.
The pipeline of projects is aimed at busting congestion in cities to get commuters home safer and faster as well as improve the efficiency of freight movement to ports and markets. The projects will also improve connectivity across regions, help grow the economy and create thousands of new local jobs - up to 50,000 direct and indirect jobs.
