South East Queensland Regional Freight Network Strategy 2007-2012
Transport and Main Roads has developed the South East Queensland Regional Freight Network Strategy 2007-2012. This strategy has been developed to support the implementation of the South East Queensland Regional Plan 2005-2026, which acknowledges freight as an important issue for the region.
South east Queensland's growing population and booming economy is creating greater demand for goods and services from industry, the commercial sector and households. This presents significant challenges for our transport system, including the effective and efficient movement of freight. With this in mind, the strategy aims to encourage freight efficient movements across the transport network in a manner that enhances economic development, safety, quality of life, and environmental sustainability.
The South East Queensland Regional Freight Network Strategy identifies the key trends for freight in the region such as competition, 24-hour freight operations, and greater demand for more innovative freight solutions, and responds to these challenges through the key areas of:
- policy development
- freight network planning
- transport infrastructure design
- enhancing freight operations
- institutional arrangements.
The strategy has a five-year time horizon and will be monitored and reviewed by the department to accommodate emerging opportunities and challenges confronting south east Queensland's fast-moving economy.
