Corridor preservation and gazettal

Corridor preservation is the process of reserving land for future transport links.

The corridor preservation process identifies and secures land needed for future infrastructure, such as roads and rail lines, before competing development comes along in a way that would prevent the land from being available for future transport infrastructure.

Corridor preservation is important when planning for the needs of growing communities and industries, to accommodate commuters, workers, businesses and industries who all rely on different types of transport modes.

Planning the necessary future transport links now ensures that as NSW grows, communities will have access to transport.

What is gazettal?

‘Gazettal’ occurs when a piece of legislation appears in the NSW Government Gazette, which is the official record of all NSW Government legislation. Gazettal means that the use of land in this area has the force of law.

While Transport for NSW does not own the land, ‘gazettal’ gives Transport for NSW say over what private landowners can do with it, up until any future transport projects are constructed on that land.
