Preserved transport corridors
Transport and Main Roads has an essential role in connecting Queensland and its people by providing a long-term strategic direction for roads throughout the state. Identifying and planning future transport corridors is part of this process. Transport corridors are not only for motor vehicles, but also for rail, bus, cycling and pedestrians.
There are two types of preserved transport corridors.
- Corridors, identified and protected many years ago, that need to be re-evaluated to determine their future role in the transport network. The original reasons for their approval may have changed and they are reassessed to take in current conditions. For many of these corridors, the state already owns a significant proportion of the affected property.
- Corridors identified in more recent times that have been through a comprehensive evaluation process, often including an impact assessment study prior to their approval by the Ministers for Transport and Main Roads.
