ISA will adopt an issues lens for better integration and outcomes.
The 20-Year State Infrastructure Strategy will demonstrate an inclusive and far-sighted view of the State and its infrastructure. It will be a key tool enabling a consistent approach to the development of infrastructure and project evaluation to build a strong pipeline of infrastructure projects. Together these will build our social capital as well as sustainable and contemporary economies to support SA’s needs well into the future.
ISA will consider issues and projects from a range of perspectives.
Infrastructure SA is committed to consulting broadly with all levels of government, infrastructure providers and users, industry, local councils and communities in the preparation of the 20-Year State Infrastructure Strategy. It is important that everyone provides input during our strategy development process.
