Infrastructure Victoria's 30 year Infrastructure Strategy

Victoria’s infrastructure strategy 2021–2051 was presented to the Victorian Parliament in mid-August of 2021. The updated strategy builds on the work of the first cross-sectoral infrastructure strategy delivered by Infrastructure Victoria in 2016, and presents a vision for a thriving, inclusive and sustainable Victoria over the next 30 years.It contains 94 recommendations for policies, projects and reforms based on extensive evidence, research and consultation and informed by innovative land use and transport modelling. These recommendations represent a capital cost of around $100 billion over 30 years and provide a practical roadmap for action in a range of public policy areas including: energy, transport, social infrastructure, freight and housing.The strategy also tackles some big challenges facing Victoria over the next three decades such as a growing and ageing population, technological transformation, a warming climate, and worsening congestion on our transport network.To achieve Victoria’s target of net zero emissions by 2050, the strategy includes recommendations to reduce the state’s transport emissions with a focus on accelerating the transition to low and zero emissions vehicles.Join Infrastructure Victoria's CEO Jonathan Spear for an overview of the state’s 30-year infrastructure strategy and insights into the independent advisory body’s recommendations for technologies, policies and incentives to achieve net zero transport emissions.
