Infrastructure NSW is an agency of the Government of New South Wales that provides independent advice to assist the NSW Government in identifying and prioritising the delivery of critical public infrastructure across the Australian state of New South Wales for economic and social wellbeing.

The agency was created in 2011 by the then Premier of New South Wales, Barry O'Farrell and it is now responsible to the current Premier, Gladys Berejiklian MP.


The independent agency, established under the Infrastructure NSW Act 2011, was set up in July 2011 to plan and oversee a wide-ranging upgrade of the state's infrastructure. One of Infrastructure NSW's first major tasks was to deliver a 20-year State Infrastructure Strategy, which was delivered in September 2012. Other initial priorities for the body were the redevelopment of Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, planning of WestConnex and traffic management around Sydney Airport and Port Botany.[1][2]

In May 2011, O'Farrell appointed former Liberal Premier Nick Greiner as chairman[3] and in June, economist and ex-Sydney Water boss Paul Broad was appointed as the chief executive officer, on a reported salary of up to A$500,000.[4][5]

On 23 May 2013, both Greiner and Broad quit their respective roles at Infrastructure NSW over repeated disputes with the O'Farrell government.[6] The former head of the Australian Business Council Graham Bradley was appointed as the new chairman and former Victorian Secretary of Victorian Department of Transport Jim Betts became interim CEO, and was later appointed permanently.[7][8][6]

On 25 November 2014, Infrastructure NSW published the State Infrastructure Strategy Update 2014, which made 30 investment recommendations on the next round of critical infrastructure for NSW.

On 5 November 2015, Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance announced Projects NSW – a specialist unit within Infrastructure NSW to manage the procurement and delivery of the state’s infrastructure priorities. Minister Constance: Making it happen with Projects NSW
