28.07.2017Infrastructure Australia Protecting Corridors Report

Infrastructure Australia released a policy paper in July 2017 urging Australian governments to protect infrastructure corridors which are vital to the country’s long-term, strategic planning.

Corridor Protection: Planning and investing for the long term argues that close to $11 billion in land purchase and construction costs could be saved by taxpayers, provided governments acquire and protect seven corridors identified as national priorities.

The Committee for Melbourne supports Infrastructure Australia’s efforts to encourage protection of strategic corridors as a prudent investment which will give current and future governments the capacity to respond to issues associated with a growing population.

Corridor protection aligns with the outcomes of the Committee for Melbourne’s Melbourne 4.0 Taskforce, which has identified the need for increased eastern seaboard collaboration and connection such as an eastern seaboard transit link.
