Infrastructure Pipeline Report Released
Building Queensland has recently published its latest Infrastructure Pipeline Report detailing the work occurring across Queensland Government assessing major infrastructure projects. The Infrastructure Pipeline Report demonstrates that projects that support higher levels of productivity and enhance social and environmental outcomes are progressing through the planning stages.
Part 1 of the report outlines unfunded infrastructure priorities and provides an update on the status of priority projects set out in the June 2018 Infrastructure Pipeline Report. The report outlines that the detailed business cases for the Brisbane Live Entertainment Arena Roma Street Project and the Gold Coast Light Rail Stage 3A – Broadbeach to Burleigh Heads have been finalised and are now with the Queensland Government for consideration.
Part 2 of the Infrastructure Pipeline Report outlines the further six detailed business cases Building Queensland has completed in the last six months for projects with funding commitments. These include: Caboolture Hospital Expansion Stage 1; Five Schools Project; Bruce Highway Upgrade Program – Deception Bay Road Interchange Stage 1 (Package 3); M1 Pacific Motorway upgrades – Varsity Lakes to Tugun and Eight Mile Plains to Daisy Hill; and Cairns Shipping Development Project.
Two new projects have been added to Part 2 of the report. Building Queensland recently commenced detailed business cases for the Cairns Convention Centre and Ipswich Hospital Redevelopment Stage 1A. These are in addition to Building Queensland’s lead role in ongoing business case development for: the Logan Hospital Expansion; Inner City South State Secondary College; Nullinga Dam and Mareeba-Dimbulah Water Supply Scheme Improvements; and Toowoomba Hospital Redevelopment.
Since its inception in June 2016, the purpose of the Infrastructure Pipeline Report has been to inform government decision-making on infrastructure proposals under development. Six editions later, the purpose remains intact with Part 1 firmly focused on informing government’s decisions for unfunded proposals and Part 2 on proposals with funding commitments for delivery. Irrespective of funding, Building Queensland’s analysis is undertaken based on transparent frameworks to confirm the viability of projects and provide government with an informed evidence base to support infrastructure investment decisions.
