1The infrastructure charges are indexed annually on 1 July using the annual rate of the 3 year rolling average of the Queensland Roads and Bridges Construction Index (Index No. 3101 as published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics).

The infrastructure charges calculated using this calculator are indicative only. EDQ will levy infrastructure charges through a PDA Development Approval which will represent the actual charges payable.
