Infrastructure: Connecting Our Region

For a region to be successful, modern and world class infrastructure needs to be in place. This enables economic growth, builds the connections to markets and opportunities and is a key consideration for inward investors. Investing in infrastructure is also important in delivering balanced economic growth and making sure the job opportunities that we create can be accessed by all communities.
