The Infrastructure Pipeline is Building Queensland’s independent assessment of infrastructure proposals under development by Queensland Government agencies, including departments, government-owned corporations and nominated statutory authorities.
The aim of the Infrastructure Pipeline is to inform the Queensland Government’s infrastructure investment decision-making. The proposals in the Pipeline have been brought forward by government agencies and include unfunded infrastructure opportunities with a minimum capital value of $50 million. Building Queensland ensures these proposals are compared on a consistent basis and recommends the most compelling proposals for further development. Only when a Detailed Business Case has been completed is a proposal recommended for investment consideration (see Figure 1).
This is the third edition of the Infrastructure Pipeline Report. To date, the state government has provided full or partial funding commitments to seven proposals Building Queensland has recommended as priorities for the state: » Cross River Rail (Transport—Rail) » Burdekin Falls Dam—Saddle Dam & Monolith Improvement Project (Water) » European Train Control System (ETCS)—Inner City (Transport—Rail) » Financial System Renewal (Health—ICT) » Laboratory Information System (Health—ICT) » Pacific Motorway—Mudgeeraba to Varsity Lakes (Transport—Road) » Port of Townsville—Channel Capacity Upgrade (Transport—Port).
