A landmark audit of the nation’s infrastructure present condition and future needs has been delivered by Infrastructure Australia. It advises that massive investment is necessary in roads, rail, water, energy and telecommunications for a predicted population of 30.3 million in 2031. Traffic congestion in particular threatens economic growth and living standards the report states. Infrastructure Australia implores governments to construct, and stick to, a pipeline of projects to give confidence to the sector and also to lower bid costs.
