Our department leads the development of infrastructure policy, planning and investment prioritisation for the state. The government is delivering a coordinated and integrated approach to infrastructure that will build industry confidence and generate jobs and economic growth, as well as improve liveability. The functions, staff, assets, resources, expertise and capability of Building Queensland are now integrated into our department. Combining Building Queensland’s expert knowledge and capabilities in infrastructure proposal development with the existing infrastructure planning and strategy functions of our department will support good investment decisions and optimise long-term infrastructure outcomes.
The Paradise Dam Improvement Project is now managed by the Department of Regional Development, Manufacturing and Water.
The Queensland Government has developed the State Infrastructure Strategy which sets out a 20-year vision for infrastructure.
The strategy will be supported by seven Regional Infrastructure Plans and the Queensland Government Infrastructure Pipeline ( 7.7 MB).
Our department will progressively release seven Regional Infrastructure Plans (RIPs) to support the State Infrastructure Strategy (SIS) which sets out the 20-year vision for infrastructure for Queensland.
Regional Infrastructure Plans (RIPs) are key deliverables of the State Infrastructure Strategy and they will enable a more place-based approach and better align infrastructure planning and investment with the unique priorities of each region. RIPs are being developed in consultation with regional stakeholders and will be progressively released from 2022 to 2024.
Investing in the right infrastructure at the right time underpins economic growth and social outcomes, supports jobs and creates long-term prosperity for all Queenslanders.
The department provides infrastructure leadership in Queensland through a whole-of-government approach to the planning, investment, delivery and management of infrastructure.
The Business Case Development Framework ensures a consistent and rigorous approach to proposal development, enabling decision-makers to compare investment opportunities.
The Queensland Government helps local governments plan and provide infrastructure for their communities. Local government infrastructure includes water supply and reticulation, sewage treatment, local roads, stormwater management, parks and community facilities.
The department is the backbone of Queensland Government infrastructure policy and planning, engaging with the Australian Government on several matters.
We're leading the implementation of The Spit Master Plan following an extensive master planning process.
