Capital at a Glance

Budget 2017 Investment

The Government is investing $11 billion in new capital over Budgets 2017-2020 on top of already committed spending, which is the biggest increase in decades.

Capital projects take a number of years to complete. As a result some of the $11 billion in new capital will be spent outside the forecast horizon (2016/17-2020/21).

Budget 2017 invests a total of $4 billion in new money, including in the following sectors:

Education icon


$392 million

Transport icon


$1.8 billion

defence icon


$576 million

housing icon


$120 million

Health icon


$150 million

justice icon

Justice sector

$786 million
