The NSW Freight and Ports Plan 2018-2023 (PDF, 8.04 MB) is a call to action for government and industry to collaborate on clear initiatives and targets to make the NSW freight task more efficient and safe so NSW can continue to move and grow.

The Plan was published in September 2018.

Over 110 submissions were made during the consultation process from late 2017 to mid 2018.

The Plan has the following key objectives:

  • we will drive economic growth - by delivering more than $5 billion worth of infrastructure
  • we will increase efficiency, connectivity and access by recognising that time is money
  • we will deliver greater capacity by investing and enabling regional growth
  • we will improve safety and sustainability by doing more together

To achieve the objectives we will action 73 initiatives listed in the Implementation Plan.

We will report our progress on hitting our targets in the Plan’s Freight Performance Dashboard and we have published Strategic Freight Forecasts to assist local government and industry to plan for the growth in freight.

Further datasets are available on the Open Data Hub.
