The Australian Infrastructure 2019 Audit covers transport, energy, water, telecommunications and – for the first time – social infrastructure, and looks at the major challenges and opportunities facing Australia’s infrastructure over the next 15 years and beyond. They have presented their findings in terms that matter to users, by focusing on outcomes for them.
