National land freight strategy discussion paper, February 2011


This discussion paper sets out Infrastructure Australia's preliminary views on a national land freight network strategy. The purpose of the paper is to seek comments on the strategy, including on goals, objectives, strategic directions and priorities.

Infrastructure Australia contends that productivity and competitiveness are inhibited by constraints to freight. A tightly defined national land freight network, including sea ports and airports, would start to address issues such as best use of infrastructure; integration of freight and land use planning; capacity for growth, and responsiveness of infrastructure to demand.

This discussion paper provides a case and gives a list of priorities and actions for a national land freight network strategy. It also sets out an indicative list of projects and programs that Infrastructure Australia has already flagged for inclusion in a long term national land freight network plan.
