Monica Gameng   |   February 22, 2019

The Infrastructure Priority List 2019 has been released by Infrastructure Australia and it contains 121 vital infrastructure projects that will contribute to the growth of the nation. The list contains eight high-priority project, 10 priority projects, 29 high-priority initiatives and 74 priority initiatives.

High-priority and priority project are projects that have a full business case completed and positively assessed by the Infrastructure Australia Board, while high-priority and priority initiatives are projects that have not yet completed a full business case and are subject to a rigorous assessment.
