10 Year Infrastructure Plan

Infrastructure is a key enabler of economic development, which underpins our capacity to create jobs, increase productivity and stimulate growth. Infrastructure supports the quality of our social well-being, the future of our children, our cultural and lifestyle experiences and the services we use every day.

The Infrastructure Plan is informed by the Economic Development Framework and the Infrastructure Strategy providing an assessment of where sectors have prioritised infrastructure investment and planned and proposed infrastructure projects over a 10 year horizon. It is based on feedback received through the 2016–17 Economic Summit process, as well as earlier consultation and investigative studies.

In the short term the Infrastructure Plan will help industry, with its own planning and workforce management, and inform decision-making across all levels of government. Over the longer term, the Infrastructure Plan sets direction for planning and delivering infrastructure in the Northern Territory.

All statistics referred to in the Infrastructure Plan are based on 2015–16 unless otherwise stated.

The 10 Year Infrastructure Plan details planned projects for the first two years (2017–18 and 2018–19) with proposed infrastructure projects identified in the medium (2019–20 to 2021–22) and longer (2022–23 to 2026–27) term. 

Infrastructure projects identified in the medium and longer term are at various levels of maturity and many are unfunded.  They represent potential projects for future investment either by the varying levels of government or the private sector. 

As infrastructure priorities can change in response to changing demands from the community, new technologies and changes to growth and essential sectors, the Plan will be a living document which is refreshed annually, commencing in September.  All input and feedback received will be considered.

In order to provide the most current and relevant information about issues affecting Industry, you are encouraged to provide input and feedback by contacting the 10 Year Infrastructure Plan team on email InfrastructurePlan.NTG@nt.gov.au or telephone 8999 4743.

Interactive 10 Year Infrastructure plan

The 10 Year Infrastructure Plan Sector table data underpins the Interactive Business Intelligence dashboard in a visual, online, model.  The underpinning information is provided to enable industry and public to enable further analysis.  Data may be analysed and reproduced (with attribution).

The following rules have been utilised to develop the dashboard:

  • Territory wide projects (with undefined locations) are located on the map as points listed on the NT/WA boarder of the map (cascading down the page for visibility).
  • Territory wide projects (with defined locations) are located on the map in one of the nominated locations.
  • Regional projects (with more than one defined location) are attached to one community within the primary region.
  • Estimates are displayed as whole values in $million, if known. Standardised rounding has been used.
  • Unknown estimates are displayed as “dots” in the printed Plan, and zeros in the interactive dashboard
  • A lesser figure in the 2017–18 and 2018–19 columns than in the Total Estimated Cost column indicates either previous year expenditure or expenditure in outer years, in some instances beyond the 10 year term.
  • Projects may appear in two sectors; both projects are highlighted with a circumflex (^)
  • GPS locations have been manually added to each project.  These are for display purposes only, and do not indicate the exact location of a project.
  • Meta Data definitions (in order of the fields)
    • Project ID – identification number provided to enable accurate record tracking during all review processes
    • Region – The Territory is divided into eight regions
    • Project – free text describing the project
    • Location – either town, suburb, road or GPS co-ordinates
    • Total Estimated Cost ($) – Value of the project, if provided by the contributor to the plan
    • Year  - indicative financial year of planned or proposed project
    • Medium term – 3 to 5 years
    • Longer term – 6 to 10 years
    • Prospective Contributions – indicates the potential funding source for projects; Australian, Northern Territory, Local Government or private sector
    • Sector – Primary economic growth and essential sector
    • Lever - Six development levers critical to economic and social development, investment and jobs growth
    • Driver – key justification for the project
    • Secondary Sector – This field is used when infrastructure delivery, opportunities and investment needs impact more than one sector
    • Timestamp – date/time the information was collated from the Master information
