Infrastructure pipeline report released

Building Queensland has released its latest Infrastructure Pipeline Report detailing major infrastructure projects under assessment.

The Cairns Convention Centre and Ipswich Hospital Redevelopment Stage 1A were two new entries to Part 2 of the report, after the commencement of detailed business cases.

These are in addition to ongoing business case development for: the Logan Hospital Expansion; Inner City South State Secondary College; Nullinga Dam and Mareeba-Dimbulah Water Supply Scheme Improvements; and Toowoomba Hospital Redevelopment.

The Infrastructure Pipeline Report also outlines the further six detailed business cases Building Queensland has completed in the last six months for projects with funding commitments.

These include: Caboolture Hospital Expansion Stage 1; Five Schools Project; Bruce Highway Upgrade Program – Deception Bay Road Interchange Stage 1 (Package 3); M1 Pacific Motorway upgrades – Varsity Lakes to Tugun and Eight Mile Plains to Daisy Hill; and Cairns Shipping Development Project.

Unfunded priority projects include the $65-$80 million-Clinton Vessel Interaction project (Port of Gladstone), the $330 million Nullinga Dam and Mareeba-Dimbulah Water Supply Scheme Improvements, and the $450-$750 million Toowoomba Hospital Redevelopment.

“Since its inception in June 2016, the purpose of the Infrastructure Pipeline Report has been to inform government decision-making on infrastructure proposals under development,” Building Queensland chief executive officer Damian Gould said.

“Six editions later, the purpose remains intact with Part 1 firmly focused on informing government’s decisions for unfunded proposals and Part 2 on proposals with funding commitments for delivery.

“Irrespective of funding, Building Queensland’s analysis is undertaken based on transparent frameworks to confirm the viability of projects and provide government with an informed evidence base to support infrastructure investment decisions.”
