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 department also leads infrastructure planning and delivery for the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

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.
