Jobs now – jobs of the future

A record $16.7 billion is currently being invested in South Australia’s road and infrastructure for new and upgraded infrastructure that will benefit current and future generations of South Australians.

Through projects currently under construction, we are supporting more than 3,000 jobs and delivering more than 1,480 kilometres of road and rail upgrades.

Projects include the Torrens to Darlington and Gawler Rail Electrification projects. This is creating more local jobs for our industries today with long-term creation of more local jobs in our industries of tomorrow.

The State Government will continue to rebuild and expand the state’s strategic economic and social infrastructure to accommodate future needs via significant investment in transport, health and education infrastructure.
