Planning for major infrastructure corridors

Planning for major infrastructure corridors is an important process to enable the delivery of large infrastructure projects needed in the future. Major infrastructure corridor planning can involve a number of phases over many years.

A new planning guideline for major infrastructure corridors has been drafted to assist infrastructure agencies with the infrastructure corridor planning process. This includes:

  • preparing the right information and detail for projects
  • an outline of when certain project information is needed
  • guidance on planning tools and the department’s approach to using these tools.

The guideline specifies the planning tools infrastructure agencies can use at each stage of the corridor planning process. It is not a set of rules, however provides a suggested pathway to planning for and protecting infrastructure corridors.

More detail on the planning process for corridors can be found in the Planning Guideline for Major Infrastructure Corridors (PDF, 1.2 MB).
