Australia to invest $5bn improving freight transport

24 Sep 18 The Australian state of New South Wales (NSW) has released a new plan setting out investments worth AU$5bn (£2.8bn) to improve the movement of freight.

The NSW Freight & Ports Plan 2018-2023 is intended to support the increase in freight while managing growth and congestion across road and rail.

Minister for roads, maritime and freight Melinda Pavey said: “The amount of freight moved through NSW is set to grow by 28 percent to more than 618 million tonnes by 2036. To support this, the NSW Freight and Ports Plan 2018-2023 provides more than 70 initiatives for increasing capacity on the existing network, including building new infrastructure.”
