Infrastructure SA Bill

The Hon. J.A. DARLEY (15:48): I rise very briefly to indicate my support for this bill. The bill will establish Infrastructure South Australia, which will be responsible for identifying the government's infrastructure priorities through an infrastructure strategy. I have often said that a whole-of-government approach is needed for this state, and this is especially true for major infrastructure projects.

It is important that the left hand knows what the right hand is doing rather than having departments operate within a silo mentality. In some cases, I have witnessed departments not even having a whole-of-department approach let alone a whole-of-government approach. Having a body such as Infrastructure South Australia will provide clarity for the direction the state is heading and its priorities.
