The second State Infrastructure Strategy (SIS) has been released. This Strategy outlines capital projects in NSW over the next ten years, from 2008-09 to 2017-18.

The State Infrastructure Strategy links the 10-year State Plan, the 25-year metropolitan and regional strategies, and the infrastructure plans detailed in each state budget. The aim is to facilitate more effective budget planning and prioritisation of the NSW Government’s infrastructure projects. The Strategy is updated every two years.

The second SIS shows that $140 billion is to be invested in new and upgraded infrastructure over the next ten years. This funding is to come from the NSW annual budgets, borrowings, and Public Private Partnerships (PPPs).  It is estimated that between 10 and 15 percent of the State’s future capital expenditure is to be procured through PPPs.

Key projects include:

Transport

Rail
Buses
Roads
Ports

Urban Development

Water
Energy

Education

Over $2 billion is to be spent over the next four years on the public education and training capital works program, which includes the following initiatives:

Health

Housing

Ageing, Disability and Home Care

Justice

Future PPPs

The Strategy lists the following projects as potential PPPs:
