30 Priority Proposals in Latest Infrastructure Pipeline

17 January 2018

Building Queensland has identified 30 priority infrastructure proposals in the December 2017 Infrastructure Pipeline Report, released today.

This fourth edition of the report demonstrates how Building Queensland is informing the right decisions on infrastructure projects where commitments have not yet been made by the Queensland Government.

The pipeline has evolved, providing greater visibility of the status of proposals where the detailed analysis is complete and informed decisions can be made.

With six detailed business cases now complete, the Queensland Government has the evidence to make informed infrastructure decisions on the path forward for projects.

Completed business cases include:

  • Beerburrum to Nambour Rail Upgrade
  • Cunningham Highway—Yamanto Interchange to Ebenezer Creek
  • Public Safety Regional Radio Communications
  • South Queensland Correctional Facilities Expansion
  • Townsville Eastern Access Rail Corridor
  • Lower Fitzroy River Infrastructure Project.

The detailed business cases provide the government with a broad range of recommendations. These include recommendations for government investment consideration, including referral of projects to Infrastructure Australia for potential Australian Government funding, as well as alternative options to address identified service needs in the long-term including corridor preservation and confirming demand and other triggers.

Projects like the Townsville Eastern Access Rail Corridor have made the list because of the benefits associated with corridor protection and investment in the broader supply chain will bring to the state.

Similarly, the Lower Fitzroy River Infrastructure Project presents the opportunity to enhance agricultural and industrial development in the Fitzroy Basin and Gladstone region; however, confirmation of commitments from potential users is a necessary initial step.

The pipeline reflects the importance of maintaining sight of long-term opportunities while pursuing appropriate short-term actions.
