Part 1: Introduction
About this Plan
The NSW Freight and Ports Plan 2018-2023 (the Plan) is a supporting plan to Transport for NSW’s (TfNSW) Future Transport 2056 and aligns with other key NSW Government plans, including the State Infrastructure Strategy, NSW Regional Plans and Greater Sydney Commission District Plans.
The Plan identifies key issues that NSW Government agencies, the Australian Government and local councils need to consider and incorporate into land use and infrastructure planning.
The directions and actions recommended by the Inquiry into National Freight and Supply Chain Priorities have been considered in the development of this Plan. The NSW Government is working closely with the Australian Government and other jurisdictions in the development of the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy.
