MITEZ 50-Year Freight Infrastructure Plan Final Report (8MB)

The MITEZ 50-Year Freight Infrastructure Plan Final Report identifies the strategic issues facing the region’s industries and its freight supply chain through stakeholder interviews, thorough economic analysis of the region’s commodities and world demand for these products and reference to acknowledged best practice examples of freight supply chain planning and investment.

Drawing on the public submissions received in response to this report and with the benefit of further detailed economic modelling of this supply chain’s economy, this inaugural 50-year plan lays foundations to secure the most timely supply chain planning and investment priorities for now and the future.

It is intended that this inaugural plan will also bring the Mount Isa to Townsville Supply Chain to much greater prominence, thereby attracting a level of investor and public policy attention perhaps more in keeping with this nationally-significant freight task.
