Restart NSW

In 2011 the NSW Government established the Restart NSW fund to enable high priority infrastructure projects to be funded and delivered. Infrastructure NSW is responsible for assessing and recommending Restart NSW projects

Projects funded by Restart NSW improve the productivity and competitiveness of NSW across all sectors and include a mixture of regional and metropolitan projects.

As at June 2017, funds deposited into Restart NSW, since 2011, have totalled $29.8 billion. Restart NSW is the vehicle for the delivery of the Rebuilding NSW plan, which is the Government’s 10-year plan to invest $20 billion in new infrastructure funded by the electricity network transactions, Commonwealth Government Asset Recycling Initiative payments, and investment earnings.  These proceeds are first deposited into Restart NSW before being invested into Rebuilding NSW projects.
