Ipswich to Springfield Rail Study
The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has released a report detailing the Ipswich Central to Springfield Central Public Transport Corridors.
The State Government has recognised this rail corridor as a priority project, considering it the region’s highest priority infrastructure project.
Ipswich City Council will also work with TMR to immediately progress with the implementation of stage 1 (Strategic Business Case) of the three formal planning stages.
Currently, the trip for Springfield residents travelling by rail to Ipswich takes a minimum 50 minutes, with this project aiming to halve this time for commuters.
The Institute supports the development of this business case for a rail corridor and will write in support of it in coming weeks.
More information is available here or, TMR can be contacted by email email@example.com.
If you have any specific comments or views, please contact Institute Policy Executive Robert Tily via firstname.lastname@example.org.
