Our research program

One of our core roles is to publish original research on infrastructure-related issues. Through our research, we aim to raise the bar for long-term, evidence-based infrastructure planning, as well as stimulate discussion within the community about important infrastructure issues.

Our research will also inform the update of the 30-year infrastructure strategy and provide crucial evidence to support our recommendations.

See a list of our current research below, or visit the Resources page to access all of our previous research reports.
