1 BUILDING AN INTEGRATED TRANSPORT NETWORK FREIGHT The ACT Government s vision is to deliver an efficient, safe and sustainable freight network and services for a growing ACT and regional economy and community while protecting urban amenity and freight access and reducing the emission intensity of the freight transport industry. Building an Integrated Transport Network Freight provides a clear direction to the freight industry, governments and the community to ensure the ACT has a sustainable and productive freight transport system at the local, regional and national level. It forms part of the ACT Government s complementary approach to build an integrated transport network that supports the government s broader economic, social and environmental objectives.

2 WHY HAVE A FREIGHT STRATEGY? When we purchase items off the internet, fill our cars with petrol, order flowers or build a house, we expect it to be delivered smoothly and without delays. This is essential for daily living and reflective of modern life in Canberra. Although we don t often think about how freight arrives and where it is stored, its distribution has implications for road congestion, noise, land use and safety. Freight movement therefore needs careful consideration and long-term planning. The bulk of freight in the ACT is handled by the private sector, but the ACT Government ensures the supporting infrastructure, such as roads and land availability, is as reliable, efficient and as strategically located as possible. The strategy makes provisions for better land use, transport and environmental conditions as well as the needs of a growing ACT and regional economy. It considers: population growth outlooks emerging trends/technologies freight demand and its relationship with land use and regional development ACT s statutory obligations regarding heavy vehicles and freight infrastructure the importance of safety, urban amenity and sustainability in freight operations. WHAT WILL THE STRATEGY GUIDE? Broad level planning: Localised planning: Integrated planning: Bulk goods infrastructure and transport networks (road, rail and air). Last mile access and interface issues, including delivery, loading and parking requirements at local shops. Continuing access to goods, services and markets to improve productivity by protecting freight corridors and precincts.

3 WHY IS FREIGHT IMPORTANT? Over 12 million tonnes of commodities were carried by all ACT freight vehicles in the 12 months ending June 2012 as shown below. This is equivalent to around 520 B-double heavy vehicle movements on the ACT roads daily. Nearly all freight to and from the ACT is roadbased and primarily comprises imports into the ACT with the majority coming from NSW. Canberra Airport handles a small amount of air freight at present, but aims to become a regional freight hub with the expected commencement of an overnight express service to meet the increasing demand for time-sensitive, door-to-door freight. The largest proportion of freight movement relates to construction, followed by manufactured goods, tools of trade and other commodities. The ACT freight task is expected to double in the next 20 years, consistent with national trends. While rail is underutilised at present, the ACT Government and the NSW Government have recently signed up to a two year trial transporting scrap metal on rail from Kingston to Port Botany that will reduce up to five long distance B-double heavy vehicle movements on the ACT and NSW road network every day. Food and live animals Beverages and tobacco Crude materials, inedible, except fuels Mineral fuels, lubricants and related materials Animal and vegetable oils, fats and waxes Chemicals and related products, not elsewhere specified Manufactured goods Machinery, transport equipment Miscellaneous manufactured articles Tools of trade Other commodities, not elsewhere specified Unspecified Source: ABS Survey of Motor Vehicle Use ,000 1,500 2,000 2,500 3,000 3,500 4,000 Total tonnes carried, '000

4 INTEGRATED TRANSPORT NETWORK In cities around the world, integrated transport networks shape the way cities grow and prosper, generating economic opportunities and jobs, and providing vibrant and attractive social environments for residents and visitors. Freight is an important component in building an integrated transport network for Canberra. This network includes all transport modes and is part of delivering key government policies including Transport for Canberra, ACT Planning Strategy, AP2 (A New Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan for the ACT), ACT Government Infrastructure Plan and ACT Road Safety Strategy. It is aligned with the key freight routes and policy directions established under National Land Freight Strategy. Building a healthy and active city Promoting walking and cycling Designing a connected city Reducing transport emissions BUILDING AN INTEGRATED TRANSPORT NETWORK Improving roads and freight efficiency Creating better parking solutions Delivering Light Rail Improving bus services WHAT WE ARE LOOKING AT? The Freight Strategy aims to: improve approved freight routes and links to the national and regional routes to support different configurations of heavy vehicles provide suitable freight facilities to support the infrastructure required to accommodate higher mass vehicles and higher productivity vehicles including places where drivers can uncouple B-doubles and rest safeguard important freight corridors and minimise interaction of heavy vehicle with passenger traffic in built-up areas provide better last mile accessibility to destinations including loading and parking at a local level, e.g. local shop deliveries provide a safe freight and traffic network that helps manage impacts on the community. HOW DOES THIS STRATEGY WORK WITH OTHER ACT GOVERNMENT INITIATIVES? It supports transport initiatives such as the: Majura Parkway development of an orbital route for traffic and freight movements around the city core Capital Metro Network prioritisation of central transport corridors for public transport.

6 DIRECTIONS AND ACTIONS Direction 1: Understand the freight task and plan for the future Action 1.1 Action 1.2 Improve data collection, reporting and analysis of freight activities. Output: Data capture process put in place ensuring coordinated data with NSW. Identify and protect future freight activities, corridors and local freight access. Output: A road network map of the ACT indicating current and future freight activities. Direction 2: Invest in the right infrastructure Action 2.1 Develop, evaluate and implement an infrastructure upgrade program to meet the needs of future freight activities, larger freight vehicles and urban planning and redevelopment directions. Output: Inclusion of freight initiatives in the ACT infrastructure capital works program. Direction 3: Implement better regulation and enforcement Action 3.1 Action 3.2 Implement local legislation to support national regulatory reforms. Output: Legislation enacted in the ACT mandating transport access and heavy vehicle regulation. Investigate options for larger freight vehicle access to local ACT destinations and also for limiting such access where urban planning and redevelopment directions may require. Output: Maps, notices and regulations issues and requests for route access to the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (HML and above). Direction 4: Build community support Action 4.1 Engage the community in understanding of freight and traffic management challenges, treatments and opportunities. Output: Clear road hierarchy for freight and passenger movement and local traffic management. Direction 5: Connect with the region and other stakeholders Action 5.1 Work with Australian, state and local governments and industry to take a strategic approach to protect and enhance freight routes and facilities in the region. Output: Agreement on routes and supporting infrastructure (e.g. fuel stops, rest stops, decoupling locations, weighing stations).
