Update to the 20-year State Infrastructure Strategy

Infrastructure NSW has made 30 investment recommendations to Government on the next round of critical infrastructure for NSW—set out in the 'State Infrastructure Strategy Update 2014'. The recommendations are for infrastructure projects and programs valued at $18.9 billion—priorities that will reduce congestion, support population growth and stimulate productivity across Sydney and regional NSW.

Independent modelling by Deloitte Access Economics has found that if implemented effectively the recommendations would increase the Gross State Product by around $30.9 billion and add 122,000 more jobs.

Infrastructure NSW’s report targets three areas: Global Sydney’s competitiveness; supporting population and economic growth in Greater Sydney, including Parramatta and Western Sydney; and ensuring productive regional industries and connected regional communities.

The 'State Infrastructure Strategy Update 2014' was prepared by Infrastructure NSW at the direction of the Premier to guide how proceeds from the Rebuilding NSW initiative could be spent.
