Infrastructure Victoria is undertaking the first ever 30-year infrastructure strategy for Victoria.

Our options paper All things considered puts forward over 200 ideas for how we could address Victoria’s infrastructure needs in the future and is the next and important step in development of the 30-year strategy.

These options encompass a wide range of ideas, across nine sectors and the whole state. These ideas include ways to better manage demand, better utilise our existing assets and building new infrastructure only where we need it most.

In developing our options, Infrastructure Victoria has drawn on evidence from the public sector, private sector and academia, and considered proposals previously suggested, initiatives that have been implemented overseas and new ideas to respond to future trends.

These are options not recommendations, and everything is on the table and up for consideration
We are inviting you to tell us what you think and what we’ve missed to help shape Victoria’s future.

Read the options paper.

For our full description and preliminary assessment of each option, read the Draft options book.
