Infrastructure planning and policy
The former State Infrastructure Plan set the direction for planning, investment and delivery of infrastructure in Queensland.
The Queensland Government is currently replacing the State Infrastructure Plan with a new State Infrastructure Strategy (SIS) that will set the statewide priorities for infrastructure.
The SIS will provide an infrastructure framework to guide infrastructure planning and investment over the long term. It will be supported by Regional Infrastructure Plans and the Queensland Government Infrastructure Pipeline.
Queensland Government Infrastructure Pipeline
The Queensland Government Infrastructure Pipeline (PDF, 7MB) (QGIP) provides industry with visibility of the government’s forward infrastructure pipeline, including the funded four-year capital program and infrastructure proposals under development.
The QGIP will be updated annually.
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.
Growth Area and Regional Infrastructure Investment Fund
The Growth Area and Regional Infrastructure Investment Fund helps support the delivery of new state-led infrastructure or the improvement of existing facilities to improve liveability in areas experiencing growth.
Projects that have received funding include:
- Reid Park active transport bridge, Townsville
- Magnetic Island Forts Junction Hub upgrade, Magnetic Island
- Yeppoon heritage rail station restoration, Yeppoon
- Capricorn Coast Pineapple Rail Trail Extension, Yeppoon
- Student nurse accommodation, Roma
- Carseldine Urban Village pedestrian bridge, Carseldine
- Munruben Ambulance Station, Logan
- Logan Hospital maternity services access road, Logan
The Digital Enablement for Queensland Infrastructure - Principles for BIM Implementation, will improve lifecycle management of assets and the on-time and on-budget delivery of new government infrastructure.
This framework will assist government departments and statutory authorities prepare strategic asset management plans.
The Total Asset Management Plan (TAMP) Framework is the whole-of-government policy for managing Queensland Government assets.
Connecting Brisbane outlines a roadmap for the future of Brisbane’s public transport system.
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.
