20 year State Infrastructure Strategy
Major infrastructure in sectors such as transport, water, electricity, health and telecommunications in NSW is essential to the state's economic growth and people's quality of life.
Infrastructure NSW (INSW) is working with the NSW Government to identify and prioritise critical public infrastructure for NSW. One of INSW's core activities is developing a 20-year State Infrastructure Strategy (SIS). It will be the first time that an integrated and long-term view of infrastructure has been delivered for NSW.
The final strategy, which will be released to the NSW Government in September 2012, will identify what infrastructure the state needs to achieve economic growth and how to activate both public and private sector resources to deliver it.
INSW will prioritise those sectors that drive productivity growth and have the greatest impact on economic growth and, ultimately, quality of life.
The strategy will go through a disciplined process that takes into account:
- 20 year forecasts of the NSW economy.
- Predicted population growth and demand for infrastructure
- The current state of infrastructure in NSW.
- The State Government's long term objectives for sectors
such as transport, water, electricity and
- Options for demand management and other policy, pricing
and regulatory reforms.
- Investment policies and strategies to efficiently and
effectively address infrastructure needs.
- Identify funding options and financing models for
combined public and private sector investment.
