The Treasurer delivered the Federal Budget on 6 October 2020 and among some of the highlights found in the plan is a sizable portion earmarked for infrastructure and transportation across the country.
The 2020-21 budget delivered significant infrastructure spending across all states and territories in relation to major transport infrastructure (road and rail).

The Federal Government has made a commitment to invest an additional $14 billion in new and accelerated infrastructure projects over the next four years. These projects will support a further 40,000 jobs during their construction.
