What we do

Invest in infrastructure to drive economic growth

Infrastructure, and the way it is planned, provided, used and maintained, is one of the key levers that government has to increase productivity and economic growth and meet its policy objectives Infrastructure Tasmania will be established  as an office within the Department of State Growth  to provide a coordinated approach to the planning and delivery of all major infrastructure in Tasmania, including rail, major roads, energy, ports, and water and sewerage.

Infrastructure Tasmania's core functions will be to assess and prioritise all major publicly-funded infrastructure.

It will coordinate funding submissions under state and commonwealth budget processes and the management of Tasmania’s dealings with Infrastructure Australia.

It will prioritise advice on the implementation of Government infrastructure policy and the completion of tasks and investigations at the request of the Government where relevant.
