About us

Our role

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) moves and connects people, places, goods and services safely, efficiently and effectively across Queensland.

TMR is responsible for planning, managing and delivering an integrated transport network across road, rail, air and sea for the state. Through this, the department is committed to ensuring Queensland’s transport system contributes to people’s quality of life, a vibrant economy and a sustainable environment.

In 2018–19, the department administered an operating budget of $5.886 billion, capital budget of $3.186 billion and managed assets worth $71.296 billion.

This funding enables us to continue to deliver public transport and transport infrastructure to connect Queensland and to help ensure the infrastructure we build and maintain is efficient, reliable and safe.

The department operates under the Administrative Arrangements Order (No.2) 2018 and The Public Service Departmental Arrangements Notice (No.4) 2017. It discharges its statutory obligations under 23 acts listed in Appendix 1. Progress in achieving these obligations and further information are included throughout this online version of the annual report.
