Tasmanian Infrastructure Strategy - Long term, sustained transformational change

A vision for the future: our key economic sectors

The Tasmanian Infrastructure Strategy identifies the vision for infrastructure in our key economic sectors of transport, water, energy, digital and acknowledges the central role the planning system plays in Tasmania. It details where we are today (each sector's current characteristics), the work we need to do (reform pathway) and where we aim to be (our approach in ten years and beyond).

The task ahead: road to the future

In order to reach our vision, the Tasmanian Infrastructure Strategy sets goals for the next 0-3, 3-5 and 5-10 years and beyond. It comprises a mixture of physical and non-physical solutions including strategies, changes in governance and the delivery of projects and initiatives. Each of these accomplished in a coordinated manner will ensure long-term, sustained transformational change from which the Tasmanian economy will enjoy significant benefits.
