Which Australian city has the best infrastructure?
Posted On July 28, 2021
Axium Infrastructure Partners, the company behind the $6.7 billion Sydney-based infrastructure developer, has unveiled its latest list of the best in the world.
The report, Axium’s Infrastructure in the World 2020, ranks all 50 cities and identifies which infrastructure providers are the best at delivering on their commitment to sustainability.
The Axium team has identified infrastructure as the biggest challenge facing cities and infrastructure companies in the 21st century.
In its 2017 report, which it released last week, Axial Infrastructure Partners identified climate change as the most important issue facing cities, and infrastructure is an urgent and critical part of that challenge.
“With the global warming issue dominating the media coverage of the 20th century, cities across the globe are beginning to address climate change,” the report says.
“With the rise of climate-related extreme weather, cities are seeing an urgent need to adapt to these challenges and provide better infrastructure for our citizens.”
Axon has partnered with more than 100 city and infrastructure partners around the world to develop infrastructure, and the report highlights Axial’s success in building and maintaining infrastructure in the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
Axial has already built the first phase of its Sydney Harbour Bridge project, and it has the infrastructure to provide the new East Coast Rail Link, which will be built through Sydney and surrounds.
It is also looking to build the first stage of a second Sydney Harbour Rail Link across the city.
This second phase is expected to cost about $40 billion and will be completed in 2026.
The company says it is a global leader in infrastructure and the infrastructure sector, with operations in over 20 countries.
“We have an established footprint in Australia and a network of nearly 150 companies across all sectors of infrastructure,” Axial said.
“The report has highlighted the importance of the infrastructure that we are building to support the next generation of the global economy.”
Axial Infrastructure partners with companies such as KPMG, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Arup, Ernst & Young and the International Finance Corporation.
