Shovel Ready Projects Australia

In response to economic impacts from COVID-19, the Australian Government announced a $1.5 billion package to invest in infrastructure which includes $1 billion for Shovel Ready projects that can support jobs immediately.

Across the country this initiative delivers projects that can get underway now and over the next six months, providing an immediate boost to the economy and local jobs.

This investment is part of the Australian Government’s $100 billion, 10-year infrastructure pipeline, which is laying the foundations of a financial bridge to recovery on the other side of COVID-19.
