The Queensland Government aims to provide a better and safer transport network for all Queenslanders. To ensure the best possible future for all, privately owned land must sometimes be acquired for improvements to transport infrastructure.
The Transport Planning and Co-ordination Act 1994 allows the Department of Transport and Main Roads to acquire land, and the Acquisition of Land Act 1967 explains the provisions for acquisition.
With forward planning, some property owners may be advised of a land requirement well before construction. However, land is usually not acquired more than one or two years prior to construction.
Some land owners may approach TMR to be considered for an early purchase of their property under the TMR Property Hardship Acquisition Policy.
