New South Wales launches a new freight strategy

The Government of New South Wales has released a new freight plan aiming to deliver safer, faster, more efficient and sustainable freight transport services to boost a growing NSW economy.
Under the NSW Freight and Ports Plan 2018-2023, more than AUD 5 billion (USD 3.6 billion) will be invested across the sector to support the growing freight task while managing growth and congestion across road and rail.
The freight movement through NSW will grow by 28 per cent to 618 million tonnes by 2036 and to support this increase, the strategy provides more than 70 initiatives for increasing capacity on the existing network, including building new infrastructure, Minister for Roads, Maritime and Freight Melinda Pavey explained.
“The NSW Freight and Ports Plan 2018-2023 highlights the government and industry plans for road, rail, air, shipping and pipelines and builds on investment from the 2013 NSW Freight and Ports Strategy,” Pavey said.
