Summary

"In October 2003, the former Minister for Infrastructure, Planning and Natural Resources and his department were requested to investigate increasing the rail mode share to and from Port Botany to support the expansion of the Port and reduce congestion. On December 13, 2004 the Minister announced a rail mode share target of 40% of container traffic in and out of Port Botany. The Freight Infrastructure Advisory Board (FIAB), chaired by the Hon. Laurie Brereton, was established at this time to provide expert advice on infrastructure required to increase the volume of freight on rail. FIAB was asked to review and report on intermodal terminal network design, related transport infrastructure, potential changes to work practices and other strategies to minimise unnecessary movements of containers across the city. ... In October 2005 the Premier announced that the proposed expansion of Port Botany would proceed, and released the FIAB Report. The FIAB Report was referred to the Infrastructure Implementation Group in Premier's Department to: review its recommendations; identify priority projects and those that require strategic coordination; and develop an implementation plan based on those priority projects."--Introduction.
