Roads implementation program 2008-09 to 2012-13

The Roads Implementation Program (RIP) is Main Roads' primary mechanism for delivering roads to meet current and future needs. The RIP is one of the most important capital works program for Queensland. It recognises the important role of roads in connecting people, goods and services. The RIP is a rolling five-year program of works, with firm funding for projects in the first two years and indicative funding for planning purposes over the following three years. Over the next five years, the Roads Implementation Program 2008-09 to 2012-13 outlines how the Government will spend $16.2 billion on Queensland's roads. This represents a rise of $2.9 billion, or 22 per cent, over last year's five-year program of $13.3 billion. The RIP comprises $12 billion, or 74 per cent, from Queensland Government sources and $4.2 billion in federal government funding. It also includes the spend for some $94 million for Safer Roads Sooner projects over the next two years. In addition to the $16.2 billion allocated in the RIP, $4.2 billion will be spent on the combined Airport Link and Northern Busway project (the nation's largest road infrastructure project) and $900 million to complete the Gateway Upgrade Project.
