South Australia to deliver $12.9B infrastructure pipeline
The South Australian Government has announced a $12.9 billion infrastructure pipeline over a four year period, the largest in the state’s history.
According to Premier Steven Marshall, since March 2018, the state government has secured billions of dollars for key road and infrastructure projects.
“We’re not just building roads, we’re also building schools, hospitals and affordable housing – our infrastructure build underpins a host of sectors within our economy and will improve the lives of everyday South Australians,” Marshall said.
“There is more infrastructure work in the pipeline than ever before, and this massive investment will underpin thousands of construction jobs for years to come.”
Infrastructure Minister Stephan Knoll said a constructive working relationship with the Federal Government has paid dividends for South Australians.
“By working constructively with the Federal Government we have secured billions of dollars to bust congestion in metropolitan Adelaide and fix over 1000 kilometres of regional roads,” Knoll said.
“We are also delivering key public transport projects including more Park ‘n’ Rides and the Gawler line electrification project, as well as big regional infrastructure projects like the Port Wakefield Overpass and Joy Baluch Bridge Duplication projects.”
Secured projects include:
- $354 million Regency to Pym Project
- $220 million Gawler Line Electrification Project
- $231 million Torrens Road (Ovingham) grade separation
- $171 million Brighton Road (Hove) grade separation
- $98 million Magill Road and Portrush Road intersection upgrade
- $200 million Joy Baluch Bridge Duplication Project
- $122.5 million Port Wakefield Overpass and Duplication Project
- $250 million Princes Highway upgrade
