Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Road and Bridge Construction industry has performed strongly since the mid-2000s, driven principally by federal and state road funding and private sector investment into public toll roads. Despite slowing over the past five years, the industry is operating at near record levels of activity. This has paved the way for extensive multiplier effects throughout the local and general economies and improved efficiency and safety for road users.

Industry revenue is projected to grow by an annualised 2.2% over the five years through 2013-14 to total $14.6 billion. This includes an upswing by 6.6% in 2013-14 driven by construction activity on new housing subdivisions and ongoing major roadworks... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

Australia's road and bridge construction market has soared to record heights.
