Infrastructure Investment Fund

Gas, electricity, water and fibre-optic cable are the crucial building blocks of the economy. This essential infrastructure powers businesses, enables trade and creates opportunities for communities, particularly in regional cities such as Mount Gambier and surrounding districts.

To attract industry to a regional area, critical infrastructure such as road access, power, water and fibre optic must be in place. An infrastructure investment fund would allow for our city to attract both businesses and industries to establish and operate. 

For the city to attract major employers and business opportunities, modern, safe and reliable infrastructure networks are essential to realise business growth opportunities. 

Initiatives could include: 

  • Shared industrial hubs;
  • Warehousing;
  • Temperature controlled storage;
  • Intermodal feasibility study.

The Infrastructure Investment Fund is one of 17 initiatives outlined in my Future Mount Gambier plan.
