Infrastructure Australia green lights $2 billion QLD upgrades

More than $2 billion in upgrades to the Bruce Highway and M1 Pacific Motorway have been added to the Infrastructure Priority List, following business case approval by Infrastructure Australia.

The Infrastructure Priority List is a pipeline of nationally significant infrastructure needs for the country over the next 15 years.

Infrastructure Australia Chief Executive Romilly Madew said inclusion on the list shows that a proposal has undergone a rigorous business case assessment.

“The list supports better project selection by ensuring Australia’s governments are presented with the best available evidence when making funding decisions,” Ms. Madew said.

“With the addition of the Bruce Highway duplication between Edmonton to Gordonvale and upgrades to two sections of the M1 Pacific Motorway – Eight Mile Plains to Daisy Hill and Varsity Lakes to Tugun – the priority list identifies close to $4 billion worth of nationally-significant projects for Queensland.”
