2020 Infrastructure Priority List: projects across South Australia

Monica Gameng   |   March 12, 2020

Infrastructure Australia’s annual Infrastructure Priority List was released in late February and it includes about $58 billion worth of nationally significant projects. The 2020 Infrastructure Priority List includes six high priority projects, 17 priority projects, 36 high priority initiatives and 88 priority initiatives as well as 37 new infrastructure proposals.

High priority and priority projects are advanced proposals that already have a full business case and have been assessed by Infrastructure Australia as capable of addressing a nationally significant problem or opportunity.

On the other hand, high priority and priority initiatives are projects that have been determined by Infrastructure Australia to have potential to address a nationally significant problem or opportunity.

This installment of our 2020 Priority List blog series, we will list the projects and initiatives for South Australia.

Project Status Description Timeframe
Eyre Infrastructure Project (Iron Road) Priority project Eyre Peninsula freight capacity 0 - 5 Years
Adelaide North-South Corridor upgrade (remaining sections) Priority initiative Adelaide north-south urban road network capacity 0 - 5 Yeah
AdeLINK tram network Priority initiative Adelaide public transport capacity 5 - 10 Years

Sturt Highway High Productivity Vehicle capacity enhancement, including Truro bypass Priority initiative South Australia road freight network capacity 5 - 10 Years
Gawler Craton rail access Priority initiative Freight rail connection to Gawler Craton mineral province 10 - 15 Years

*Note: Timeframes for projects are indicative of estimated time the project is likely to be delivered or completed, while timeframes for initiatives indicate the time the proposed projects are likely to become nationally significant.
