Future of freight the focus at regional forums

A series of freight forums will be held in NSW later this month to discuss the state government’s current and future freight projects and initiatives in the regions.

The forums will feature discussions on future planning for freight in seven regional areas, current investments in new projects, along with initiatives and upcoming opportunities.

Minister for Regional Roads and Transport Sam Farraway said freight injects $66 billion into the NSW economy annually. “Freight is a priority for our government and we know that local industry insight is critical to the future success of our state’s freight economy,” Farraway said.

“We are delivering legacy infrastructure throughout the bush to keep people and goods moving. We are also listening to industry so we can better understand issues facing our regional operators and customers, as well as gaining feedback on the work we are doing.

“These forums allow us to engage with industry and to have important discussions with local freight operators and customers about their unique challenges and opportunities.

“We are committed to improving the connectivity, capacity and resilience of our freight network in response to the changing needs of communities and business across NSW.”
