The Federal Government has announced a commitment to big infrastructure projects worth up to $24.5 million in a move designed to lift economic growth, according to the treasurer Scott Morrison.
The budget will make a number of major infrastructure projects possible across Australia—in every state and territory. The budget also allows for funding of the Snowy Hydro 2.0 project, which is estimated to be $4.5bn on top of the $6bn already spent buying out NSW and Victoria’s shares in the scheme).
“The investment is road, rail, and public transport projects will reduce congestion, keep our roads safe, connect people to jobs, and get our produce to market,” says Federal Treasurer Scott Morrison.
A summary of some of the major projects by State is listed below:
