This is part of its commitment to strengthen our growing economy, detailed in the 2016–17 Infrastructure Plan Update.

Over the next four years, the ACT Government will deliver an infrastructure investment program exceeding $2.9 billion that will deliver new facilities and services for Canberrans.

The release of the plan coincides with the Infrastructure Partnerships Australia "Australia-Canada Infrastructure Symposium" where the ACT’s experience on the Light Rail project will be discussed.

After the ACT community voted for a city-wide light rail network for Canberra for the second election in a row in 2016, the Territory is now seen across Australia as a leader in light rail investment.

The Government has already delivered a range of transformational projects including improvements to Calvary Public and Canberra Hospital, new schools in Coombs and in Gungahlin, Woden Bus Interchange redevelopment, improvements to major roads such as the Majura Parkway and ongoing improvements to our town centers, parks and sporting facilities.
