The Infrastructure Pipeline Report presents Building Queensland’s independent, expert view of priority infrastructure proposals under development by the Queensland Government.

The report is presented in two parts. Part 1 – Infrastructure Pipeline identifies Queensland Government infrastructure proposals that are unfunded for delivery with a minimum capital cost of $50 million. These are the proposals Building Queensland recommends are further analysed, or are ready for consideration by government.

Part 2 – Funded Proposals provides information on the detailed business cases Building Queensland is leading that have funding commitments for delivery from the Queensland Government.
