Transport Infrastructure Development Scheme

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) Transport Infrastructure Development Scheme (TIDS) funding is provided to local governments by the Department of Transport and Main Roads for the upgrade of transport infrastructure that improves primary access (road, air and sea) to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities throughout Queensland. 

An annual state-wide funding allocation of $8.2 million across Queensland’s 34 communities is provided to improve access and transport infrastructure (such as roads, aerodromes, barge ramps and jetties).

A number of Aboriginal Shire Councils are now members of the Roads and Transport Alliance through membership with established Regional Roads and Transport Groups. These Councils have decision making authority over their ATSI TIDS allocation. 

Councils that are not members of a Regional Roads and Transport Group have their ATSI TIDS funding managed through their local Transport and Main Roads District Office.
