A$7.5 billion boost for transport infrastructure

The COVID-19 economic recovery plan includes spending A$7.5 billion on national transport infrastructure.

The government will draw on local businesses to stimulate local economies.

More efficient transport links will produce safer roads and boost productivity.

State and territory governments have been asked to fast-track projects and to co-invest.

“We have been working closely with state and territory governments to invest in the infrastructure that is ready to go,” Prime Minister Scott Morrison says.

Businesses servicing the transport infrastructure sector will hopefully soon see a range of “shovel ready” projects to tender for.
