Infrastructure planning and policy
The State Infrastructure Plan sets the direction for planning, investment and delivery of infrastructure in Queensland.
It details a four-year program of infrastructure projects that is updated annually, to build industry confidence, generate jobs and economic growth, and improve liveability. Work has also commenced on a new State Infrastructure Strategy with integrated Regional Infrastructure Plans.
The Queensland Government is providing $2.2 billion over five years, from 2015–16, to build the priority infrastructure needed to support economic growth and liveability into the future.
This supports the implementation of the State Infrastructure Plan and further demonstrates this government's commitment to planning and delivering infrastructure.
The Strategy for Social Infrastructure outlines a place-specific approach to planning and investing in social facilities like schools and hospitals to benefit Queensland communities.

There are a number of public and private sector infrastructure pipelines providing industry, potential investors and all levels of government with information about infrastructure projects currently underway.
Building Queensland provides the Queensland Government with independent, expert advice on major infrastructure. The Queensland Government commissioned an independent review of Building Queensland's first 12 months of operation.
The administrative review ( 528 KB) found that Building Queensland has been effective but that improvements could be made. The Queensland Government's response ( 92 KB) to this review generally supports the recommendations, most of which are already being implemented.
