Queensland Freight Action Plan workshops

Tuesday 13 August 2019

A series of freight action workshops will be conducted across the state from August 19 - September 11 in response to the Queensland Freight Strategy that was released by the Minister for Transport and Main roads on March 5. 

The strategy is being used to guide the development of a rolling two-year Queensland Freight action plan that will indicate how government and stakeholders will work together to further freight in Queensland. 

With the Queensland freight task expected to increase by 20 per cent over the next 10 years, it is critical to plan for Queensland’s future freight requirements, and these consultation workshops are a key step in hearing the views of all interested stakeholders as we develop the first Queensland Freight Action Plan.

A regional schedule has been developed in order to engage with a broad range of stakeholders across Queensland. It is intended that stakeholders will attend one workshop at the most convenient location.
