National Land Freight Strategy - Infrastructure Australia

The national land should be an extension of appropriate elements of the ports strategy to

landside routes and places which are not primarily sea freight related. The port and other

routes generally adjoin, and this enables full ‘visibility’ and complementarities of the various

freight modes; sea, air, rail and road.

Consideration and development of a national land freight network should not delay worthwhile

investment and reform proposals. The network should support and accelerate necessary

reforms. Therefore, while it is in development, Infrastructure Australia will continue to seek

and consider worthwhile infrastructure project proposals that add to national productivity

through freight. Infrastructure Australia also strongly supports speedy implementation of the

reforms already agreed by the Council of Australian Governments, and development of

further essential reform proposals.
