An updated statewide, evidence-based infrastructure plan for Victoria
This report provides an updated infrastructure strategy for Victoria. It aims to help the state address existing infrastructure pressures and prepare for the future. It covers a 30-year period from 2021-2051.
A lot has changed since we released Victoria’s first infrastructure strategy in 2016. These changes include:
- the COVID-19 pandemic
- a significant increase in government infrastructure investment
- the revised metropolitan planning strategy, Plan Melbourne
- new legislation to help Victoria reach net zero gas emissions by 2050.
Our updated strategy aims to help Victoria become prosperous, inclusive and sustainable.
We cover long-term challenges, managing urban change, infrastructure for productivity and growth and regional development.
We developed this strategy in consultation with the community. It incorporates feedback from people and organisations across Victoria.
We make 94 recommendations in the strategy. These recommendations span many types of infrastructure policies, reforms and projects.
The total estimated capital cost of our updated strategy is about $100 billion over 30 years.
Additional evidence and analysis is included in Volume 2 appendices: Victoria's infrastructure strategy 2021-2051.
