The Australian Government will reveal a new infrastructure and cities policy in the lead-up to the May 2016 Budget. It will propose linking Sydney and Melbourne to regional cities via high-speed rail services, in order to promote population growth in regional areas and curb the growth of capital cities. The Government also wants to eventually develop a Melbourne-Brisbane high-speed rail link. It will also examine alternatives to taxpayer funds for financing infrastructure projects, including so-called "value capture" financing.
