Transport Hubs for Australia, the intermodal issues for road, rail, ports and airports represents a challenge and opportunity for regional Australia. An intermodal logistics hub can be an economic asset for a regional community when they become a regional service centre.
Parkes has a long-standing plan to become a transport hub for all of Australia. It’s on the Newell Highway and the Sydney to Perth Rail line and it’s hoped an extension of the Melbourne to Brisbane rail line would mean freight companies could use Parkes as a distribution point to warehouse goods and then send them anywhere in the country.
Australian Regional Development Conference, will be held in Albury NSW on the 15 – 16 October 2014 with a focus on the broad issues of economic, planning, environment and community development.
