Environment and safety

Overview

With the size of the freight task growing every year, NSW needs a sustainable transport network that balances efficient freight movements with community expectations of safety and positive environmental outcomes.

The NSW Freight and Ports Strategy includes actions to prioritise the safety of freight transport and to manage congestion, noise and emissions generated by freight.

In addition to controlling risks, improved management of noise and emissions, greater use of ‘green technologies’ and robust safety management practices improve efficiency and lower costs for industry.
