Help inform South Australia’s next 20-Year Infrastructure Strategy

What's being prepared?

Infrastructure SA is an independent South Australian Government agency that provides expert advice to the Government on coordination, planning, prioritisation, delivery and operation of infrastructure.

Infrastructure SA is preparing South Australia’s next 20-Year State Infrastructure Strategy (the Strategy). The Strategy will assess state-wide infrastructure needs, strategic goals and priorities to 2045.

To inform the development of the Strategy we developed a Discussion Paper and sought feedback over a six-week period between 1 October and 13 November 2023.

Background

Infrastructure is central to our economic prosperity and the liveability of our State. It’s the backbone of a productive economy and it impacts and shapes every aspect of our day to day lives.

Our infrastructure is diverse - it includes roads, rail, ports, housing and facilities associated with health, culture, sports, tourism, education, energy, water and waste utilities. It also includes digital connectivity infrastructure and other physical assets that can act as enablers for industry and other sectors of the economy.

Under the Infrastructure SA Act 2018 (SA) Infrastructure SA must prepare a 20‑Year State Infrastructure Strategy and review it at least once every 5 years.

The first Strategy was released in 2020 and has been instrumental in guiding decision making and investment decisions for infrastructure since its publication.

The new 20-Year State Infrastructure Strategy will provide expert, independent advice to the South Australian Government on future strategic infrastructure needs. It will support Government to prioritise infrastructure spending, ensuring it is aligned to economic growth, while balancing social and environmental objectives.

What we heard

The six-week consultation period has now closed.  Feedback was welcomed via written submissions direct to Infrastructure SA or via submitting comments using the online submission form on this website.

A summary of the feedback received is available in our What we Heard report.

Written submissions received have also been published on the Infrastructure SA website.

What are the next steps?

Infrastructure SA will use the feedback and information received to help inform the preparation of the 20-Year State Infrastructure Strategy due to be finalised in late 2024/early 2025.
