Workshop highlighted the need for an alternative dedicated freight rail connection from the Inland Rail route to the Port of Brisbane.
The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) has welcomed the policy paper from Infrastructure Australia (IA), Corridor Protection: Planning and investing for the long term, which demonstrates the importance of corridor protection in preventing cost blowouts, project delays and community disruption in infrastructure projects.

"ALC has consistently worked to highlight the necessity of corridor preservation as part of a consistent and coherent approach to developing Australia's national freight infrastructure," says ALC managing director Michael Kilgariff.

"Good planning leads to good infrastructure outcomes for the community. Preserving corridors to accommodate the infrastructure needed to meet our future freight task lies at the heart of responsible planning policy."

"This new policy paper from IA adds to the weight of evidence demonstrating just how vital corridor preservation is. Making the right decisions today not only helps to reduce the cost of infrastructure projects in the future, but also avoids community conflict and social dislocation by providing certainty as to land use," he says.
 
He adds that corridor protection was a core theme during a recent ALC workshop in Brisbane which stressed the need for an alternative dedicated freight rail connection from the Inland Rail route through to the Port of Brisbane.
