Why we have the QTRIP

As well as meeting the statutory requirements set out in the Transport Infrastructure Act 1994, the QTRIP aims to keep the community, industry, government and organisations informed of our investment focus over the coming years.  

The QTRIP outlines investment for roads, railways, marine, public transport and active transport initiatives. It is presented by geographical location and includes program highlights and a list of major investments.


Transport and Main Roads designs, delivers and maintains transport infrastructure with a vision of 'creating a single integrated transport network accessible to everyone' through a transport system that is easily accessible, safe, responsive, efficient and sustainable. The Queensland Transport and Roads Investment Program (QTRIP) enables the department to improve road safety, freight productivity and transport network reliability. It also supports local governments and indigenous communities in delivering local transport infrastructure upgrades.

QTRIP provides transparency about current and planned investment in transport infrastructure across Queensland over the next 4 years. The QTRIP investment tables detail planned cashflows, with the first 2 years considered firm and years 3 and 4 indicative for planning purposes. QTRIP supports sustainable transport solutions and multimodal demands by integrating transport and land-use planning.

QTRIP includes works for Transport and Main Roads, Queensland Rail and Gold Coast Waterways Authority. QTRIP investment spans road, rail, bus, cycling and maritime infrastructure on freight, commuter and recreational networks.

QTRIP is developed in accordance with funding allocations identified by the Australian Government and Queensland Government in their annual budgets, which align to both governments’ policy objectives.
