Infrastructure (Connecting the Hunter)
RDA Hunter consulted widely throughout 2010 and encouraged discussion with regional partners and government to identify infrastructure priorities. The input from these forums is summarised at Appendix 1, using the seven themes for action identified by Infrastructure Australia as the most important infrastructure objectives for the nation.
These discussions confirmed Infrastructure Australia’s view that “world class infrastructure networks are essential to driving sustainable economic development and growth, lifting levels of productivity and boosting employment”. This is as relevant to the Hunter, as it is to Australia.
