Building infrastructure

Infrastructure underpins growth by providing the supporting networks demanded by a growing economy. It is a catalyst for growth because it creates new economic opportunities.

Infrastructure assets are typically costly and can take many years to plan, commission, build and bring into service. Projecting the future demand for infrastructure is critical to ensuring that the right level of investment is made in the right infrastructure at the right time.
