NT Infrastructure Audit

The Infrastructure Audit will provide a gap analysis of the Northern Territory’s infrastructure needs that will examine future challenges and opportunities and ways to respond to them.

The audit will provide evidence base to guide future infrastructure investment decision making and focus attention on the investments and reforms to improve our living standards and local and national productivity.

The new NT Infrastructure Audit will be completed in 2 phases. Phase 1 comprised a desktop study of existing material.

Phase 2 of the audit will provide a gap analysis of existing baseline infrastructure and service level standards, identify reforms to harness opportunity and address challenges in the mid-term to 2030 and the longer term to 2050.

NT Infrastructure Audit Series will:

  • Establish an infrastructure needs assessment
  • Undertake a gap analysis of the baseline infrastructure and service level standard
  • Identify reforms to harness opportunity and address challenges
  • Be reviewed every four years following the NT Infrastructure Strategy

The audit to be released in early 2023 will:

  • recognise infrastructure legacy issues
  • provide a gap analysis of existing baseline infrastructure and service level standard
  • identify reforms to harness opportunity and address challenges
  • identify infrastructure that could unlock future growth and development and improve quality of life or productivity beyond the status quo
  • provide a mid-term (2030) understanding of the infrastructure requirements to deliver on the Territory Government’s goal of a sustainable and diverse $40 billion economy, a population of 300 000 and 35 000 more jobs by 2030 that includes expectations of liveable and environmentally responsible communities
  • provide a longer term (2050) understanding of the infrastructure requirements to meet global and national emerging trends, such as a net zero emissions future and the impacts of climate change risks and opportunities such as the take up of electric vehicles.

The NT Infrastructure Audit is the start of how we can adapt existing networks to our changing user needs. The audit covers transport and logistics, utilities, social and industry infrastructure across all regions in the Territory.

The NT Infrastructure Audit will be reviewed every four years to monitor progress and ensure it aligns with the NT Infrastructure Strategy and inform the Infrastructure Plan and Pipeline.
