Our fair share
A fair share of transport funding for Victoria.
Victoria is the fastest growing state and economy in the nation.
That’s why the Victorian Government is building major projects like the North East Link and the Metro Tunnel and delivering the biggest investment in regional and suburban roads in Victoria's history.
Victoria’s share of national infrastructure funding is 18% over the next five years, despite Victoria having 26% of the population.
A fair share of transport infrastructure funding would enable greater investment in the major projects a growing Victoria needs now to meet demand for the future.
Current investment in transport infrastructure
The Victorian Government is making a record investment in transport infrastructure.
A fair share of funding from Canberra would mean getting on with the projects a growing Victoria needs, like the new Suburban Rail Loop and better rail services to the fast-growing western suburbs and regional rail, road and port upgrades.
The Victorian Government’s multi-billion-dollar pipeline of new transport infrastructure includes building the Metro Tunnel, the West Gate Tunnel, removing 75 level crossings and upgrades to every regional rail line.
There is also the biggest investment in regional and suburban roads in Victoria's history.
Victoria's Big Build includes:
- Metro Tunnel
- Regional Rail Revival – upgrading every regional rail line in Victoria
- Melbourne Airport Rail Link
- Level Crossing Removal Project - removing 75 level crossings, improving road safety and traffic flow
- West Gate Tunnel Project - providing an alternative to the West Gate Bridge
- North East Link Project - Victoria's biggest road tunnel and project.
