Building our State

We will create jobs for South Australians by growing our economy through effective investment in productive infrastructure and development while also ensuring quality planning, transport and local government services.


We Believe

  • Government has a responsibility to be careful with your money – all government projects must provide real economic value for the taxpayer
  • Economies thrive when government acts in the best interests of their people – we need a government that is responsive to the diverse needs of individuals and communities when planning and delivering public infrastructure and services
  • Investment in productive and social infrastructure is crucial in creating long term economic growth, jobs and opportunities
  • Economic growth is maximised when governments prioritise investment in key projects according to forward planning


How we will achieve this together

  • 5.1 Taking a strategic focus on the future to plan for and deliver on the needs of South Australia in an efficient and sustainable way
  • 5.2 Prioritising the productive infrastructure that our State needs
  • 5.3 Working in partnerships to grow jobs and deliver real outcomes for South Australians
  • 5.4 Ensuring we have inclusive and liveable city centres and regional hubs
  • 5.5 Ensuring our transport system is safe and responsive to the needs of users and good value for money
