Regional Transport Plans

The Department of Transport and Main Roads is working with state and local government and other key stakeholders throughout Queensland to develop a series of Regional Transport Plans. These plans will guide the planning of an efficient and responsive transport system in Queensland over the next 15 years. 

The delivery of the plans is a requirement of the Transport Planning and Coordination Act (1994). The plans provide a bridge between local, Queensland and Australian government planning, drawing from and supporting the region’s goals.

What is a Regional Transport Plan?

Regional Transport Plans are developed with key stakeholders, including representatives from state and local government, business and industry to prioritise and manage the transport system so that it effectively supports regional communities, growth and productivity.

The plans achieve this by:

  • establishing common transport priorities between the Queensland Government and local governments
  • communicating our planning intent for the region
  • defining the transport systems’ role in achieving regional goals and priorities for our planning and investment
  • partnering with local government
  • guiding future transport planning and investment.

Draft Regional Transport Plans for comment

The draft regional transport plans have been developed in collaboration with our local government partners and with input from key stakeholders. The draft RTPs outline the priorities and actions for the future development of the region’s transport network.  

The department is currently reviewing feedback on the draft RTPs received during the consultation period. The final plans are expected to be released later in 2019. 

If you would like to provide your input into the draft plans before they're finalised, please email tmr_regional_transport_plans@tmr.qld.gov.au for more information.
