Increase infrastructure funding to meet our infrastructure challenges and boost productivity

Section: 7.2. Improving funding and financing


Given that current expenditure levels are unlikely to be sufficient to provide for infrastructure needs in coming decades, a material increase in infrastructure funding from both public and private sources is required to meet our infrastructure challenges and boost productivity.

The government should increase infrastructure funding where there are opportunities to use investment to support productivity growth, resilience and improvements in environmental outcomes. Investments should be made based on rigorous assessments of which projects deliver positive value for money.
