Coronavirus response for land transport infrastructure

The department is monitoring the impacts of COVID-19 on the delivery of transport infrastructure projects, including in regional and remote areas affected by border closures and the lockdown of Indigenous communities.

The Australian Government is continuing to work with state and territory governments, and local councils to deliver our transport infrastructure pipeline, including opportunities to accelerate delivery and bring forward projects.

For further information on the Government's response to COVID-19, please see Infrastructure investment response to COVID-19.

  • The efficient movement of people and products grows our economy and improves the liveability of our cities and regions.
  • The Australian Government is investing a record $100 billion over the next 10 years through its rolling infrastructure plan, of which a substantial component is under the Infrastructure Investment Program.

  • The Australian Government is delivering on its plan to build a stronger and more prosperous Western Sydney by investing in major infrastructure upgrades.
