Dominic Perrottet, New
South Wales Treasurer

infrastructure game in New South Wales.
Sydney now accounts for more than half of the cranes
in Australian skies – a number that once again increased

Boral CEO Mike Kane said recently he expects the
infrastructure boom to last for 10 years – and for it to be even

place to live, work, raise a family and run a business.
We are passionate about building infrastructure because it
contributes to improving the quality of people’s lives.
A new metro means a quicker trip home to join the family
Infrastructure is about making both the economy and society thrive.
New South Wales is leading the country because of the funding capacity from asset recycling.
The ongoing spectre of political interventions in markets and projects is a growing concern.
