The total value of engineering construction work done across the different sectors during the past 15 years is shown in graph 19.17. The value of public sector engineering construction work done has shown a slight decline over the past three years. Since 2000-01 the value of engineering construction work done by the private sector has increased substantially and by 2002-03 was of greater value than work done by the public sector.
Table 19.18 shows in more detail the contribution of public and private sectors to engineering construction work done. In 2002-03 the private sector increased its share of the total engineering construction work done to 54%.
Roads, highways and subdivisions accounted for 26% of the total value of engineering construction work done in 2002-03. Traditionally a public sector activity, the private sector has increased its share of construction work done of roads, highways and subdivisions to 39% in 2002-03 up from 30% in 2001-02. Oil, gas, coal and other minerals, a mainly private sector activity increased 79% to $5,635m and now accounts for 23% of the total value of engineering construction work done in 2002-03.
