Delivering “better infrastructure and planning” is key to the State Government’s plan of a four pillar economy to get “Queensland back on track”. As transport takes a leading role in strengthening the Queensland economy, there has never been a better time to review the transport projects and policy promoting the State’s future productivity and prosperity.
