Integrated Transport Network

Overview

Queensland’s vast and diverse transport network continues to grow and plays a fundamental role in the state’s economic growth. Responsible planning and prioritising ensures Queensland’s long-term transport needs are met in the most cost-effective way and provides clear direction. This is achieved through long-and medium-term strategies and plans critical to Queensland’s transport needs. These are developed and managed to ensure integrated planning across the state, designing for the transport needs of the future.
