Securing the missing benefits of Australia's infrastructure boom

Our infrastructure specialists, led by David Donnelly, have been busy exploring the barriers to delivering Australia's project pipeline. A recent survey conducted by Allens, shows the industry has clear concerns about the unprecedented infrastructure boom.

77% of senior industry leaders say they are more concerned now about the risks facing the sector than they were five years ago. 43% of senior industry leaders say their ability to deliver the project pipeline is their biggest concern in the next three to five years. They also say transport projects involving tunnels are nine times more likely than social infrastructure to cause delays or cost blow outs.

A detailed review of the research and our recommendations for short-to-medium opportunities are available in our report: 'Securing the missing benefits of Australia's infrastructure boom', along with a video of David Donnelly interviewing partner Nikky O'Leary on the findings of that report.
