InfrastructureQ cements the State’s infrastructure agenda

A key milestone in the Queensland Government’s plan to deliver better infrastructure has been achieved today with the release of the InfrastructureQ Directions Statement.

Deputy Premier and Minister for State Development, Infrastructure and Planning Jeff Seeney said the statement was the first step in defining a new approach towards planning, prioritising and delivering infrastructure in the future.

“Queensland is at an exciting place in time where our strong plan for a brighter future could deliver major game-changing infrastructure for our State,” Mr Seeney said.

“InfrastructureQ, to be fully released in early 2015, shows our Government is acting on its pledge deliver better infrastructure across our State and key sectors such as transport and education.

“This is especially important given the fiscal repair task that we are facing, and the possibility that Queenslanders will support the unlocking of $8.6 billion for infrastructure through asset transactions identified in the Strongest Smartest Choice – Queensland’s Plan for Secure Finances and a Strong Economy.”
 
Mr Seeney said the State Government was committed to identifying a genuine pipeline of future projects to ensure sustained growth of the State’s economy, particularly in regional Queensland.

The plan will be guided by six key principles outlined in the InfrastructureQ Directions Statement:

    Principle 1: Integrated infrastructure planning
    Principle 2: A credible statewide infrastructure program
    Principle 3: Prioritised infrastructure for economic growth and productivity
    Principle 4: Encouraging new technologies and innovation
    Principle 5: Partnering with the private sector
    Principle 6: Smart financing and funding solutions.

Mr Seeney said the directions statement acknowledged the significant role and potential of the private sector to partner with the State Government to deliver and operate key infrastructure.

“InfrastructureQ will highlight the Government’s commitment to further involve and partner with the private sector which is the engine-room of economic growth,” he said.

“The Queensland Government expects that, when released, InfrastructureQ will become an important reference document for industry and will be updated annually to ensure relevance and reliability.”
