Central West transport needs study

Central West transport needs study - evaluating the appropriateness of existing land transport networks in meeting the short and long term needs of the Central West. To view the final report see the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development website.

The Australian Government funded a strategic study of the transport needs of the Central West. The final report can be viewed following the link below.

The study focussed on the road and rail transport needs for passengers and freight between the Central West region of NSW and Sydney, Newcastle, and Port Kembla. The study also investigated the future role of major centres in providing inter-modal transport and strategies to meet the region's needs over the next 25 years.

The study area was predominantly made up of the local government areas forming the Central West regional organisation of councils: Bathurst, Blayney, Boorowa, Cabonne, Cowra, Forbes, Harden, Lachlan, Lithgow, Mid-Western Regional, Oberon, Orange, Parkes, Weddin, Wellington and Young.

The following stakeholders were consulted during the study:
