The Council of Capital City Lord Mayors (CCCLM) welcomes Labor’s infrastructure policy, acknowledging the ALP’s continued support for cities.

Lord Mayors support Labor’s policy to bolster Infrastructure Australia by providing it with the administration of infrastructure financing facility, whilst conforming to Infrastructure Australia’s priority list.

CCCLM Chair, Katrina Fong Lim (Lord Mayor of Darwin) commented that “the support of the Infrastructure Australia priority list is intrinsic in providing long term infrastructure to our cities.

“This ensures decisions are made for the right infrastructure, at the right time and in the right location – with the strategic direction of spanning the life of one government,” said Katrina Fong Lim

In our rapidly changing world, cities matter more than ever before. Cities now act as a location that centralises where investments are made, new ideas are formed, jobs are created, and most importantly where lives are lived.

CCCLM welcomes the continuing interest and understanding the ALP has for cities, and the need of investment in infrastructure to ensure their continued economic growth.
