Investing in infrastructure and capital is a key element of the Government’s strategy to protect and create jobs, to help the economy recover and to improve the long-term wellbeing of Canberrans.
To support this the Government is delivering a Capital Works Program of $2.3 billion over the four years to 2023-24. The Capital Works Program does not include capital provisions. Provisioned items total $1.7 billion, bringing the Government’s total projected investment in infrastructure over the next four years to $4.0 billion.
The Capital Works Program includes:
- new projects approved in the 2020-21 Economic and Fiscal Update;
- work-in-progress on projects commenced in previous years;
- improvements to existing infrastructure under the Better Infrastructure Fund (BIF), to extend the useful life, or improve the service delivery capacity, of existing physical assets; and
- Information and Communication Technology and Plant and Equipment expenditure as enabling investment to better facilitate government service delivery in the Territory.
The data outlines the funding and service type of each project within the Capital Works Program, along with the directorate responsible for project delivery.
