2020 Infrastructure Priority List: projects across Victoria

Monica Gameng   |   March 6, 2020

Infrastructure Australia has released its annual Infrastructure Priority List in late February and it highlights about $58 billion worth of infrastructure projects that hold national significance. This year’s 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.

Continuing our 2020 Infrastructure Priority List series of posts will be the projects in Victoria included in the list.
