All 102 recommendations from NSW’s ‘State Infrastructure Strategy 2022-2042: Staying Ahead’ are to be supported in full or in-principle by the NSW Government.
Minister for Infrastructure Rob Stokes said the nine key strategic directions and 89 recommendations would be fully supported, while the remaining 13 are supported in principle.
“The fortunes of NSW have been transformed on the back of this government’s 11 years of infrastructure delivery, with more than $178 billion in projects built since 2011 and another $112.7 billion in the pipeline over the next four years,” says Minister for Infrastructure Rob Stokes.
“Throughout that time, the Government has sought the clear-eyed and independent advice of Infrastructure NSW to guide the allocation of taxpayers’ funds towards the projects that are needed most,” says Minister for Infrastructure Rob Stokes.
“By accepting the strategy’s recommendations, NSW will continue to enjoy the economic benefits that infrastructure creates,” says Minister for Infrastructure Rob Stokes.
Transformative megaprojects will continue in addition to a wide range of less complex projects which can be delivered more easily by local construction companies.
“We are determined to transform NSW through infrastructure that creates opportunity, improves access and makes people’s lives better,” says Minister for Infrastructure Rob Stokes.
The State Infrastructure Strategy sets out the government’s priorities for the next 20 years, and combined with ‘Future Transport 2056’, ‘The Greater Cities Region Plan’ and the ’20-Year Economic Vision for Regional NSW’, brings together infrastructure investment and land-use planning for our cities and regions.
