Which projects are the most important for Australia’s energy future?
Posted On August 3, 2021
The Government has announced a major infrastructure project for the future, but there are also many other areas in which the Government needs to take the lead.
The Government’s infrastructure review announced on Thursday is focused on delivering long-term solutions to a number of key issues, including a long-awaited $100 billion power supply project.
The report will look at the most significant infrastructure projects across the country, including the proposed Northern Rail Link project.
Mr Hockey said the Government was committed to making the project a reality, but would not reveal how much of the project will be built in the coming years.
The Northern Rail project has been the subject of intense political scrutiny, with the Government seeking to get the project under way by 2020.
Mr Abbott and his team are keen to get Northern Rail to go ahead, but they are also keen to make sure the project does not undermine the Government’s long-standing commitment to deliver a strong, sustainable economy.
The government has been in negotiations with the rail industry for nearly two years.
If the Northern Rail deal goes ahead, the Government will not have to wait long to be awarded the contract.
It will be worth more than $4 billion over 30 years.
While the Northern Railway project is the biggest of its kind, the Federal Government will also have to consider whether to build the $8 billion WestConnex project, which will be designed to link Melbourne with Sydney.
WestConex will be a high-speed rail link between the Gold Coast and Brisbane.
However, WestConcept and the Australian Government have not been able to agree on the price of the WestConnec project.
Federal Transport Minister Darren Chester said the Federal government was not keen on WestConEX and the Government had not made a decision yet on the WestCnex project.
“We’ve had a lot of conversations with WestConEx and WestConCnex.
They’re both very complex and challenging projects, but we’re not going to get too far ahead of ourselves,” Mr Chester said.
We will certainly look at WestConecnex, and we will certainly consider WestConx.” “
There are some good options out on the table, there are some very, very challenging options out.
We will certainly look at WestConecnex, and we will certainly consider WestConx.”
The WestContex project will cost more than the $7.5 billion proposed for the Northern, and would see the construction of a high speed rail link to the Goldfields.
However the Federal Treasurer Joe Hockey has said the Westconnex project is a long way from completion.
The Abbott Government has repeatedly said the $4.8 billion Northern Rail line will be completed by 2025, but the Government has struggled to get its own money to build it.
Mr Chester confirmed that the Government still has some issues to resolve with the Northern project.
He said it had “a number of issues” and was “getting closer and closer” to getting a deal in place for WestCongex.
