Transport Infrastructure Development Scheme
The Transport Infrastructure Development Scheme (TIDS) supports and provides for the local transport infrastructure needs of communities throughout Queensland while demonstrating value for money.
TIDS is Transport and Main Roads’ key policy framework for engaging with local government under the Roads Alliance and has been successful in increasing investment in the regional road network.
The Roads Alliance is a partnership between the department and local government for the regional stewardship of Queensland’s transport network.
TIDS provides in excess of A$63 million in funding to local government each year for the development of transport related infrastructure.
TIDS aims to:
- increase overall investment in Queensland’s road and transport related infrastructure
- improve safety performance on Queensland’s transport network
- improve transport stewardship and delivery capability of local government and the department
- increase collaboration between both spheres of government.
2011 TIDS review
The department has recently undertaken a review of the TIDS policy to ensure it continues to efficiently deliver investment dollars to councils.
The revised policy incorporates significant feedback from local governments and our Roads Alliance partners, the Local Government Association of Queensland.
The key changes to the policy are evidence of the maturity of the Roads Alliance framework. The revised policy gives Regional Road Groups greater authority over how funds are used.
A summary of the key changes is available.
