Robust Infrastructure:
Sustainable transport 

Sustainable transport looks at the long term supply chain requirements of the community to facilitate economic growth and diversity. For regional and remote area of Queensland transport issues to overcome include:

  • distances that need to be travelled, 

  • time to market

  • supply chain requirements

  • weather impacts e.g. flooded roads

  • population limitations.

Sustainable transport often looks at getting people out of cars and into public transport.  This is not the major issue for regional and remote areas as the populations are generally not large enough to sustain public transport.  
Sustainable transport in regional areas need to look at how the local businesses and population can be sustained and supported. Once these are supported additional infrastructure can be considered such as electric vehicle charging centres.
