Infrastructure and urban development – your investment opportunity
Queensland is Australia’s most decentralised mainland state, with more than half of the population living outside our capital city. This means infrastructure is always a priority industry that is hungry for investment. Our growing and diversifying economy and increasingly skilled workforce need smarter infrastructure that can support our ambitions for tomorrow.
Infrastructure has always played an essential role in ensuring a strong and resilient Queensland. It supports our growing communities, encourages employment outcomes, and enables delivery of critical services.
Infrastructure investment has played a significant role in economic recovery from past natural disasters and downturns. In a post-COVID-19 environment, it will be critical to accelerating the state’s road to recovery through investment in traditional and emerging industries and sectors.
A certain and responsive infrastructure pipeline is key to industry recovery. Recognising this, the Queensland Government is committed to a four-year, $51.8 billion program of works. The Capital Program will see the right infrastructure delivered in the right place and at the right time to unite and recover for jobs and the community.
Queensland has a strong reputation for ongoing public and private investment in catalytic infrastructure – led by roads, water distribution, sewage and wastewater, stormwater, and transport. As they are essential to unlocking Queensland’s full potential, these projects represent excellent opportunities for investment.
