The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has undertaken planning on the Toowoomba transport network to address the predicted rise in traffic congestion through the town centre and improve road safety as the city grows.

The Toowoomba North South Transport Corridor (TNSTC) strategic planning project has identified a need to connect future residential and employment growth areas while addressing emerging freight needs with the protection of a future transport corridor.

Identifying and protecting a future transport corridor is an important planning initiative that enables the Toowoomba community to make informed decisions about land use investment. Corridor protection ensures urban, rural, commercial and industrial development meets growing community needs and aligns with a future transport corridor.

Currently there is no funding for construction of the proposed transport corridor. As demand for additional north-south transport routes increases, TMR will continue to seek funding for future infrastructure opportunities to meet community needs.

Have your say

An essential component to confirming the location and protection of a future transport corridor is to undertake community consultation.

All feedback will be considered and will inform current planning and determine if corridor protection should proceed.

It is important to note that potentially affected landowners will have the opportunity to provide site specific feedback about how the future state transport corridor will affect their property, business and amenity. This is planned to occur in mid-2023.

There are 4 ways you can provide feedback below; pin a comment to the interactive map, complete the online survey or post to the 2 feedback walls. You can use all 4 options.

Feedback for the interactive map and online survey close 13 October 2023.

The quick poll and feedback walls remain open until late 2023 for ongoing feedback to be provided.
