Ongoing investment in infrastructure is crucial to sustaining Australia TradeCoast’s competitive advantages and driving future growth and development in the region.
Australia TradeCoast’s partners are investing heavily in infrastructure for the region. The partnership has invested $1 billion in the last 5 years and is committed to investing more than $5 billion in infrastructure within the region over the next ten years. Infrastructure investments include:
- major road upgrades
- airport and port expansion
- drainage and fill
- water infrastructure
- public and active transport
- public amenity.
The infrastructure activities of each of Australia TradeCoast’s partners are coordinated through the Infrastructure Working Group forum. This group brings together the relevant representatives from each of Australia TradeCoast’s partners to discuss common infrastructure issues that exist within the region and facilitate a coordinated response to these issues.
