A generational upgrade to South Australia's freight export infrastructure

A generational upgrade of our freight export infrastructure is required to provide our companies with the competitive advantage they need to get our premium quality South Australian products to markets across the globe.

A non-stop freight corridor bypassing the city

Our plan will develop an alternative corridor for heavy freight. The dangerous conditions on the Princes Highway and the noisy and disruptive freight railway will be replaced with a new freight corridor.

A 24-hour freight airport at the heart of the network

At the Murray Bridge end of the new corridor, there is a perfect location to build a new, freight-only airport with no curfew, thus operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The benefits

New Markets

South Australian Business will be connected to new interstate and international markets.

Fast and efficient freight

Avoiding steep hills, load limits, traffic congestion and flight curfews allows for quicker delivery.

24 hour access to export

An airport that allows South Australia to always be open for business.

Heavy vehicle reduction

Road freight will avoid the dangerous South Eastern freeway descent and will be taken off thoroughfares such as Portrush Road to ease congestion.

Reducing crossing delays

Removal of freight trains from key inner suburban and hills intersections.

Liveability

Safer freight paths, improving land value and lifestyle throughout the suburbs and hills.
