6     Infrastructure Investment

Key Issues

·       The provision of total infrastructure funding of $4.6 billion in the 2021-22 Budget maintains the Government’s strong commitment to infrastructure investment, continuing to support Tasmania’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. This investment will provide confidence to Tasmanian businesses to continue to invest and grow.

·       Infrastructure investment in the General Government Sector exceeds $3.8 billion over the 2021‑22 Budget and Forward Estimates. This includes funding for roads and bridges ($2 billion); hospitals and health ($503.7 million); human services and housing ($404.9 million); schools, education and skills ($335.8 million); law and order ($238.8 million); tourism, recreation and culture ($183.6 million); and ICT support to service delivery ($145.4 million).

·       The Budget includes additional funding of almost $600 million for the delivery of new infrastructure, delivering on the Government’s 2021 election commitments. This includes significant projects, such as: $110 million for the Royal Hobart Hospital Redevelopment - Expanded Stage 2; $80 million for the Launceston General Hospital - Mental Health Precinct; and $39.7 million for four major school redevelopments at Exeter High School, Cambridge Primary School, Montello Primary School, and Lauderdale Primary School. In addition, $500 million has been committed to Stage 2 of the Launceston General Hospital Redevelopment, commencing in 2025-26.

·       To continue to ensure that Tasmanians can access secure accommodation, the Budget provides an additional $280 million for the Extended Social Housing Build. This is in addition to $100 million for new social housing dwellings provided in the 2020-21 Budget.

·       In addition to the significant investment in the General Government Sector, the 2021-22 Budget supports investment by government businesses and other entities, with $783.8 million in equity funding for infrastructure investment. This includes equity contributions of $65 million to Stadium Authority Trust to oversee the development and management of stadium assets and $64.6 million to the Macquarie Point Development Corporation to progress the next stage of the Macquarie Point development.

·       The Government has also announced it will support investment of $385 million for the largest port redevelopments in Tasmania’s history, including the $240 million Port of Devonport redevelopment and the $145 million Port of Burnie upgrade.  The Government will also support Hydro Tasmania, with $700 million to be invested in the redevelopment of the Tarraleah power station.


 

Overview

The 2021-22 Budget and Forward Estimates includes investment of $3.8 billion in community infrastructure projects, to be delivered by Government agencies, including:

·       roads and bridges ($2 billion);

·       hospitals and health ($503.7 million);

·       human services and housing ($404.9 million);

·       schools, education and skills ($335.8 million);

·       law and order ($238.8 million);

·       tourism, recreation and culture ($183.6 million);

·       ICT to support service delivery ($145.4 million); and

·       other infrastructure ($36.5 million).

In addition, the 2021-22 Budget and Forward Estimates includes infrastructure investment outside of the General Government Sector through government businesses and other entities, supported by Government equity contributions of $783.8 million.

The 2021-22 Budget supports a substantial pipeline of infrastructure investment to sustain Tasmania’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, support economic activity and jobs across the State, and provide Tasmania with next generation infrastructure.

A number of the next generation infrastructure projects extend beyond the current Forward Estimates period, including the Launceston General Hospital Redevelopment - Stage 2, West Tamar Highway Traffic Solution, projects funded under the Roads of Strategic Importance program and the $80 million Tamar River Bridge.

The Government continues to provide Tasmanian businesses with certainty of long term growth in public infrastructure investment, enabling businesses to plan and invest with confidence. Further information regarding the Government’s long term infrastructure investment plans will be published in Tasmania’s 10 Year Infrastructure Pipeline.

Notes:

1.    This Table includes expenditure (both Purchases of Non-Financial Assets and associated expenses) for all infrastructure projects, but does not include minor asset purchases for non-infrastructure projects. For these reasons, the Table is not equivalent to the Purchases of Non-Financial Assets presented in chapter 4 of this Budget Paper. Table 6.5 provides a reconciliation of Purchases of Non‑Financial Assets to Infrastructure Investment.

2.    Due to the timing of the 2021-22 Budget, preliminary outcome expenditure for 2020-21 may vary from final agency financial information published in 2020-21 Annual Reports.


·             

Infrastructure Investment Outside the General Government Sector

Infrastructure investment undertaken by Government Business Enterprises or State-owned Companies is outside of the General Government Sector and is, therefore, not included as infrastructure investment for the purpose of this chapter. Other associated entities such as the Macquarie Point Development Corporation, Stadium Authority Trust and the Tasmanian Water and Sewerage Corporation Pty Ltd also operate (or in the case of Stadium Authority Trust, is expected to operate) outside of the General Government Sector. Information on infrastructure investment undertaken by these entities can be found in entity annual reports and on entity websites.

The 2021‑22 Budget does, however, include equity contributions that are provided through the General Government Sector to directly support a number of these entities to undertake infrastructure projects. These equity contributions are detailed in Table 6.2 below.

All equity contributions to these entities are made through Finance-General.

Over the 2021‑22 Budget and Forward Estimates, the total equity funding allocated to infrastructure investment is $783.8 million. When combined with the General Government Sector agency infrastructure funding, this takes the total investment by the State and Australian Governments in infrastructure over this period to $4.6 billion.

The Government has also announced it will support investment of $385 million for the largest port redevelopments in Tasmania’s history, including the $240 million Port of Devonport redevelopment and the $145 million Port of Burnie upgrade.  The Government will also support Hydro Tasmania, with $700 million to be invested in the redevelopment of the Tarraleah power station.

Reconciliation between Infrastructure Investment and Purchases of Non‑Financial Assets

Purchases of Non‑Financial Assets is an accounting classification under the Australian Accounting Standards. It appears on the Income Statement and Cash Flow Statement and reflects purchases of non‑financial assets such as land, buildings, plant and equipment, infrastructure and intangible assets. While the majority of the Purchases of Non‑Financial Assets is comprised of Infrastructure Investment projects, there is a portion of Purchases of Non‑Financial Assets expenditure that is not included in this chapter. Such items include Budget allocations for:

·       the Government’s fleet management services;

·       ambulance, surgical and medical equipment;

·       computer software; and

·       other smaller capital items.

Conversely, Infrastructure Investment projects can include allocations of expenditure which are not classified as Purchases of Non‑Financial Assets under the Australian Accounting Standards, but are directly related to infrastructure projects. This expenditure can include items such as employee entitlements, infrastructure maintenance, grant payments and other supplies and consumables.

Table 6.5 provides a reconciliation between the two measures.
