2023 has been a tense year for the infrastructure sector, with major funding cuts, skill shortages and increasing costs of materials being some of the key pain points plaguing the industry throughout the year. 

Nevertheless, the sector is building to meet the demands of the future, with the sector embracing new technologies, championing sustainability and increasing diversity.

The next year will be centred around recovery and growth, as major projects around Australia continue development, airports experience record passenger numbers, transportation networks open up to connect communities, and much more.
