AIUS NSW City Briefing
The reality of securing future transport corridors
Our Guest speaker Geoffrey Cahill oversees the team within Transport NSW responsible for long-term corridor protection for passenger and freight railways and motorways. This involves a complex process of recommending alignments, integrating land use planning and environmental assessments, securing funding for land acquisition, engaging with community and other interested parties, and securing government support for corridor protection.

Bartier Perry, 77 Castlereagh St, Sydney
Geoffrey Cahill, Director of Corridor Preservation, Freight, Strategy and Planning Division, Transport for NSW Briefing will focus on the importance and benefits of corridor protection, which has been identified in many forums. Foremost of these is enabling sound long-term strategic planning, which involves cost-saving for future infrastructure delivery. Corridor identification and protection is a priority for the government’s Future Transport 2056, the Greater Sydney Region Plan and the State Infrastructure Strategy. The talk will provide some insight into the opportunity as well as the complexity of protecting major transport corridors for the future.
