Infrastructure investment

Transport is a major contributor to economic outcomes. The transport sector represents 4.4 percent of GDP, and almost half of Australia’s major infrastructure construction is undertaken within the transport sector.

Investment in and delivery of publicly owned transport infrastructure is the responsibility of all three levels of government. The Australian Government has committed over $75 billion for the next 10 years to transport infrastructure across Australia. This investment is assisting in building more liveable cities, enabling better-connected regional communities, driving key productivity improvements and creating safer roads.

NICS will continue to be updated as specific project information and commitments are announced by the Australian, state and territory governments.

This project is under construction

Project Logo

Queensland Government

Gold Coast Rapid Transit Parklands Drive - Helensvale Rail Station Stage 2 will connect the existing light rail system at Southport to heavy rail at the Helensvale station. The 7.3km route runs from Helensvale heavy rail station adjacent to the Gold Coast Line, then adjacent to the Smith Street Motorway to connect with Stage 1 at the Gold Coast University Hospital light rail station. The Stage 2 alignment uses existing road and rail corridors, reducing impacts on the community and the environment. The alignment extends from Helensvale station adjacent to the Gold Coast Line, then adjacent to the Smith Street Motorway to connect with Stage 1 of the light rail at the Gold Coast University Hospital. With the opening of Stage 2, public transport users will not only have a seamless, one-transfer journey between the Gold Coast and Brisbane, they will also have the option of stopping at any of the 19 light rail stations with bus connection at key activity centres along the corridor between Helensvale and Broadbeach.

Construct to new sealed four lane standard - This project involves the construction of 41km bypass road to the north of Toowoomba, running from the Warrego Highway at Helidon in the east, to the Gore Highway at Athol in the west. Key features of the project include: - four lanes (two lanes each way) from Warrego Highway East interchange to Warrego Highway West; - grade separated interchanges at Warrego Highway East interchange, Toowoomba-Cecil Plains Road and Gore Highway; - a grade separated connection to Mort Street; - 30 metre cutting at the top of the Range will be constructed as an alternative to the tunnel solution as detailed in the reference design to allow all heavy vehicles including dangerous goods and over dimensional vehicles to use the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing; - an 800 metre viaduct constructed over the existing Queensland Rail line; and - continuity of the New England Highway through a new bridge over the cutting. The project will deliver the following benefits to the region and the state: - up to 1800 full-time jobs during the construction and maintenance of the project; - improved road and driver safety; - reduced travel times across the Range by up to 40 minutes for heavy commercial vehicles; - avoiding up to 18 sets of traffic lights; - relieved pressure on Toowoomba's local roads by redirecting trucks away from Toowoomba's Central Business District; - increased freight efficiencies; and - enhance the liveability of the Toowoomba and Lockyer Valley areas.
