This lists projects completed in 2012. I appreciate the link though.It's a $10bn infrastructure program with 80+ major projects, but you can review a breakdown here. I haven't done a breakdown by seat, but several of the centrepiece projects are in Labor heartland (the Newcastle and Liverpool redevelopments are getting $1bn+ each).
