Improving Road Transport for Primary Production
The Improving Road Transport for Primary Production project aims to improve efficiency in South Australia's agricultural transport industry. It looks at addressing road transport limitations and restrictions, improving relevant regulations and decision making processes and undertaking minor capital and infrastructure works.
The project is a collaboration between Primary Industries and Regions SA (PIRSA), the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) and Primary Producers SA (PPSA).
This project has seen a number of successes, including $56 million in industry estimated benefits for both the transport industry and primary producers and the completion of 50 projects across the state.
Building on this success, a second survey was sent to key stakeholders earlier in the year seeking to help identify transport issues constraining productivity. The results of the second survey will be released soon.
