Mount Lindesay Beaudesert Strategic Transport Network Investigation

Through the Mount Lindesay/Beaudesert Strategic Transport Network Investigation we have explored the transport needs for the Mount Lindesay Beaudesert region for the future.

As part of the study we have helped ensure residential development, transport infrastructure, employment sites and community facilities are located to best support growth in the study area.

Results from the study have assisted state and local governments planning for the Mount Lindesay Beaudesert area, including the Mt Lindesay Highway upgrade program.
