NSW Government highlighting freight initiatives and projects

The New South Wales Government will be holding a series of regional freight forums later this month to discuss its projects and initiatives focused on supporting the transport industry into the future.

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

The forum will also bring attention to key topics for the region, including a focus on improved access for road and rail freight, rail connectivity to the port, upgrades to key freight routes including rest stops, and supporting local industry with the freight task.

Minister for Regional Roads and Transport, Sam Farraway, said freight injects $66 billion into the NSW economy annually, providing a vital service to business and the community.

“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,” he said.

“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.”

Forum registrations and more details can be found for the following locations:
