The forecast reports provide Local Government with valuable information to create and benchmark budget and cost estimates.
Indexes are provided for the costs associated with undertaking road construction work in the NSW in the local road sector. The indexes are meant to capture changes over time in the cost of undertaking road works. These indexes include estimates of historical changes in costs, and also, forecasts of future changes in costs. The forecasts of the cost indexes are provided as a guide to making cost projections in relation to road works, as part of financial planning by local governments in New South Wales.
Both the 2020-2030 and the 2016-2026 forecast reports are available with member council access or by registering for free.
