Infrastructure Performance Dashboard

Lead agencies

BITRE, Infrastructure Australia and Data61

Enduring question 2.1

How well are Australia's infrastructure networks performing?

Gap addressed

  • Locating and understanding infrastructure datasets.
  • Difficulties in comparing infrastructure performance and activity across infrastructure sectors and metrics.

Background

BITRE and other agencies currently publish national-level infrastructure performance data. However, this information is typically published only in report form and some stakeholders have also noted that it is sometimes difficult to locate and understand.

There is an opportunity to develop an infrastructure performance dashboard that enables users to easily track the performance and activity of the transport, water, telecommunications and energy sectors.

Objective

Develop an Infrastructure Performance Dashboard.

Project update

BITRE and Infrastructure Australia are currently working with Data61 to develop an Infrastructure Performance Measurement Dashboard.

The dashboard will cover all major economic infrastructure sectors (transport, telecommunications, water, and energy) and enable national and state-level comparisons. Where possible, the dashboard will have an outcome/customer focus and report on the following indicators types identified in BITRE's Performance Framework1 investment; price; timeliness and reliability; safety; and activity (use).

The dashboard will have a similar design and functionality as the recently released COAG performance dashboard (produced by Data61).

The dashboard will be publicly released in late 2018.
