Across Australia there is one mining boom town that stands head and shoulders above the rest. One town with over a massive $65bn in planned and committed infrastructure projects.
That town is Gladstone, a town of 30,000 on the mid-north coast of Queensland just to the South of Rockhampton.
With nine planned or committed infrastructure projects over $1bn in value, Gladstone is the classic example of an infrastructure boom town. Indeed, the value of the town's projects has rocketed 188% over the last two years to a breath-taking $65bn.
