Maddocks chairs transport industry leaders forum

Sydney – The State's freight task is projected to double in the period 2011 to 2031 with major increases in movements of coal, minerals, manufactured and imported goods. At the same time, population growth for south-east Australia currently exceeds 300,000 people per annum. More than 70 percent of immigrants to Australia come to the region. The NSW government's freight strategy is critical to address the implications of this growth whilst maintaining an efficient and productive economy.

Last week, Australian law firm Maddocks co-hosted a Committee for Economic Development of Australia (CEDA) 2014 National Transport Infrastructure Series event featuring the NSW Minister for Roads & Freight, The Hon. Duncan Gay MLCAccelerating population growth and the freight and passenger response – Maddocks Planning & Environment Partner Patrick Ibbotson chaired the event.

The Hon. Duncan Gay MLC delivered an update on transport in NSW and addressed accelerating population growth and the associated freight task. The Minister emphasised the importance of the Westconnex and NorthConnex  projects to improving the logistics chain in NSW. He also outlined the priorities for road transport connections to the proposed Badgerys' Creek airport.

The event panel included NSW Ports CEO, Stephen Cleary; Sydney Airport Corporation Limited CEO, Kerrie Mather; Asciano Managing Director and CEO, John Mullen and Transport for NSW Director General, David Stewart

Patrick  observes, "Freight is often the poor cousin in terms of people's awareness of the issues facing our economy. Yet the efficient movement of freight is vital to our economic wellbeing;  it is essential that we have in place structures and systems capable of planning for and delivering freight infrastructure in a coordinated manner – not only to and within Sydney but also in regional NSW and across State boundaries and transport modes."

The series commenced in March with a Ministerial address delivered by The Hon. Gladys Berejiklian MP, NSW Minister for Transport and features presentations from policy makers, regulatory authorities and market participants. Future events will cover freight and passenger response, network efficiencies – a look at productivity drivers, and Infrastructure Australia's priority list.
