Sixteen priority infrastructure proposals in Queensland were identified in the report, which provides independent expert advice to the government and the wider industry on unfunded infrastructure proposals
Building Queensland Board Char Alan Millhouse said in a statement that four of the 16 proposals identified have been assessed by the organisation as being ready for a government investment decision.
These include Cross River Rail, European Train Control System (ETCS) – InnerCity, Cunningham Highway – Yamanto Interchange to Ebenezer Creek and Pacific Motorway – Mudgeerabato Varsity Lakes.
“We are pleased to see the government has committed to progress the ETCS–Inner City project having received the business case from Building Queensland last month,” said Mr. Millhouse.
“We have also submitted the Cross River Rail Business Case to the Queensland Government this month and this reflects its readiness for a funding decision in our Report.”
Mr Millhouse said the Infrastructure Pipeline Report articulated for the first time priorities across all key sectors and reflects proposals currently under development by Queensland Government departments, government owned corporations and a number of statutory authorities.
“Proposals are at various stages of development—not all are ready for government investment consideration,” he said.
“Building Queensland’s role is to add rigour to proposal development and recommend priority infrastructure proposals—and we believe our Infrastructure Pipeline Report achieves these aims.”
The report will be updated every six months to reflect current infrastructure priorities.
