ADBRI boss says fast-tracking infrastructure projects will boost recovery

Adelaide Brighton’s boss Nick Miller says getting more infrastructure projects off the ground, as quickly as possible, is the best hope for federal and state governments to get more people back to work.

“The first thing we want is bipartisan support for the projects, so we get clarity of what the pipeline is looking like (and) a fast-tracking of those projects,” Mr Miller told The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald.

The $1.6 billion cement and construction materials company’s boss added that projects of varying sizes, including social housing and defence works, were needed because the larger projects typically had longer gestation periods as funding and land acquisitions were arranged.

“That’s why the small and medium projects are very important in the mix, because they will get to market quicker, and get people on jobs, on shovels, out there working,” Mr Miller said.
