Australian Construction Outlook – Transport Infrastructure

The upcoming upturn in transport infrastructure construction will reach unprecedented levels of work done, resulting from:

  • A collection of big capital city projects (road and rail),
  • A ramping-up of urban renewal, maintenance and improvement programs,
  • A general improvement, on a less splashy scale, of regional works, and
  • Short-term stimulus spending by the Federal, state and territory governments, in order to counter the recessionary downturn from the pandemic outbreak of COVID-19.

This report provides a concise explanation of the nature and magnitude of the impacts in the various transport construction segments – road, rail, bridges and harbours. It also provides a fully revised set of forecasts, and corresponding project list, for all segments of transport infrastructure construction looking ahead ten years.
