Summary

"The Minister for Infrastructure and Planning and Minister for Natural Resources, the Hon Craig Knowles MP, announced in December 2004 that a Freight Infrastructure Advisory Board would be established to help develop the Government?s Port Freight Plan for Sydney. The Advisory Board was charged with examining means of increasing the rail share of freight throughput at Port Botany. Rail?s share currently sits at 19.5 percent and is in decline. The Government wants to increase it to 40 percent by 2011. To achieve this target in the out years will require a fourfold increase in rail freight volumes. This Advisory Board believes that the target must be met if Sydney is to remain economically competitive and environmentally sustainable. It should be understood that this report is confined to the movement of import and export containers within the Sydney basin. It does not deal with other issues including the interstate movements of containers"--Introduction.
