In October 2015, the Victorian Parliament created Infrastructure Victoria as an independent advisory body and tasked us with developing Victoria’s first ever statewide, all sector, 30-year infrastructure strategy.
Now, twelve months later it has presented its strategy to the Victorian Parliament and the Victorian people. It includes 137 recommendations for improving the provision, operation, maintenance and use of the state’s infrastructure.
The Plan can be found here
The recommendations, and the social, economic and environmental objectives and needs they are designed
to meet, have been developed through an assessment of the current state of Victoria’s infrastructure, rigorous analysis of the evidence and extensive stakeholder and community consultation over the course of 2016. It is a strategy for all Victorians.
The Victorian State Government will have up to 12 months to respond to the recommendations and create its own five-year plan. Infrastructure Victoria will then, on an annual basis, report on government’s progress in fulfilling this plan.
Infrastructure Victoria is required to refresh the strategy within three to five years and they are currently intending to do so in three.
