LAYING THE FOUNDATIONS FOR VICTORIA’S 30-YEAR INFRASTRUCTURE STRATEGY

Today Infrastructure Victoria – an independent statutory authority created by the Labor Government – begun consultation on the preparation of the 30-year infrastructure strategy. Infrastructure Victoria will take short term politics out of infrastructure planning, and keep our pipeline of major projects full to grow our economy and create jobs. They will do this by ensuring Victoria’s immediate and long-term infrastructure needs are identified and prioritised based on objective, transparent analysis and evidence. A chief aim is to consult widely, consider the needs of the whole state and prioritise the projects that deliver the best results. With this, the call for long-term planning is finally being answered.

More information on the development of the strategy and the consultation activities is available at http://www.infrastructurevictoria.com.au.
