INFRASTRUCTURE Australia is calling for submissions for its 2021 Infrastructure Priority List publication.

The Priority List is a ‘live’ document, which is regularly updated on the Infrastructure Australia website and is open to submissions at any time. However, to be included in the upcoming 2021 publication, submissions must be received by 31 August 2020.

The Infrastructure Priority List provides evidence-based advice to support an informed discussion about Australia’s spending priorities.

Infrastructure Australia is looking for submissions from government and non-government bodies on nationally significant infrastructure problems and opportunities for consideration.


Submissions are welcome in all infrastructure sectors: energy, water, transport, telecommunications and social infrastructure, and should target issues affecting quality of life, productivity and/or the environment.

Infrastructure Australia particularly welcomes submissions that respond to the national initiatives added to the Priority List in 2020 such as ensuring towns and cities have safe and secure water supplies or developing a national strategy for water.

For more information about making a submission, please refer to the Infrastructure Australia Assessment Framework. The Framework provides detailed guidance on each submission stage and step-by-step advice about how to prepare a submission.
