The Commission analysed data where organisations provided estimated project phase dates. It is worth noting that analysis of the project phase data is not a true illustration of the pipeline as a whole and is only representative of the 169 projects where data was provided.
A number of organisations only provided dates at a high-level, representing project establishment (i.e. the start of the business/investment case phase) and anticipated project close (i.e. when the construction phase is complete). The Commission will continue to work with organisations on the ability to provide further information to better inform the market.
The analysis indicates that 28 projects, valued at $669 million, are expected to move from business case to procurement phase between October 2019 and the end of March 2020. Nine projects that are currently in procurement are expected to begin construction over the same time frame. Below is a view of the phase of each of the 169 projects as at 1 October 2019.
The graph below shows the number of projects moving into construction over time.
