The State Infrastructure Plan (SIP) outlines the Queensland Government’s strategic direction for the planning, investment and delivery of infrastructure in Queensland.

It represents a bold approach to addressing the state’s future infrastructure needs, focused on using our resources wisely, partnering with the private sector, and implementing a program of reform initiatives.

The SIP identifies what the government ultimately wants from its infrastructure and how this can best be achieved. Importantly, it is designed to provide confidence and certainty to industry, local government and the community by confirming the government’s investment program over the next four years.

The SIP is in two parts

The SIP, released in March 2016 after targeted statewide consultation, is in two parts – with the Part A: Strategy – updated every five years and Part B: Program – updated annually.

Part A: Strategy (PDF icon 1.9 MB) – Sets a clear vision to guide infrastructure investment in Queensland. The strategy provides a cohesive model for infrastructure planning and delivery which integrates with land-use and economic planning. It is designed to guide infrastructure planning within Queensland Government agencies and policy responses to broader infrastructure challenges.

Part B: Program – 2017 update (PDF icon 10 MB) – A four year program of infrastructure investment that is aligned with the 2017–18 State Budget, providing certainty to industry, local government and the community. The 2017 Part B update highlights:

  • A visualisation of Queensland’s Infrastructure Pipeline to show how proposals mature from early concept to a funded government project.
  • A new regional planning section to highlight emerging region shaping infrastructure priorities, with this 2017 update drawing on the draft ShapingSEQ and its consultation.
  • The progress made by Queensland Government agencies in implementing the SIP’s priorities and objectives.
  • Through consultation with local governments about the Maturing the Infrastructure Pipeline Program, the Part B update includes a maturity assessment of all 2016 proposals raised through consultation and future opportunities within each asset class, and new proposals raised through consultation.

By identifying future opportunities and proposals raised through consultation, the SIP also encourages the private sector to partner with government to develop innovative solutions to the state’s infrastructure needs.

The SIP recognises the significant role that the private sector can play in developing market-led proposals (Queensland Treasury) and is focused on considering alternative funding solutions to meet future infrastructure needs.

Feedback from stakeholders demonstrates strong support for the government's approach to infrastructure.
