South Australia announced it’s biggest ever infrastructure spend

17.9 billion in infrastructure spend has been committed over the next 4 years by the South Australian Government. This record amount was announced in South Australia’s 2021-22 state budget.
SA Premier, Steven Marshall stated that “we are locking in a significant pipeline of job-creating infrastructure projects that will transform local communities and improve lives across the state as we chart our path out of the pandemic.”
Crucial road and public transport work will create a massive pipeline of jobs with projects including:

  • $202 million for the Truro bypass
  • $48.5 million for Park ‘N’ Ride at Tea Tree Plaza
  • $79 million for the planning and site preparation works for the construction of the new $662 million 15,000 capacity multi-purpose arena within Adelaide’s Riverbank Precinct
  • $1.3 billion investment in public education infrastructure
  • Around $660 million will be invested in residential housing including the Affordable Housing Initiative
  • $1.9 billion for a new state-of-the-art Women’s and Children’s Hospital, adjacent to the existing Royal Adelaide Hospital on North Terrace

Premier Marshall further commented that “we are building new hospitals, significantly expanding emergency departments, delivering improved roads that will reduce travel times and building world-class schools and accelerating urgent school capital works that will enhance learning for students right across the state.”
“Our Budget for a stronger South Australia is creating jobs, building what matters and delivering better services to further secure our growing global reputation as one of the safest and most attractive places in the world to live, work and raise a family,” Mr Marshall said.
