I am all for the points mentioned but curious to know if cost/benefit analysis or basic economic reality comes into it?
What I can see is a submission of a $30-$50 billion wish list at the same time the govt can't find $1billion..or $100m...so obviously it's a long term plan - so will you put a timeframe on it?
Can I also say based on the Federal govt policies they have prioritised improving major highways/roads and train for freight/business over electrifying trains for commuters etc. This is economic reality so will a proposed funding model be put into the submission based on each project?
By all means submit the wishlist but I would say the priority would be addressing each projects economic impact.
I think with AO they budgeted that the $535m investment would return $110m per annum so theoretically the investment is paid back in 5 years.
So I would ask, how many of these projects would pay for themselves in five years or less?
