VFT and Impact on Freight

August 27, 2013

In recent days the Federal Government has been promoting the notion of the VFT again. They have committed funds for further investigative study and possible acquisition of land corridors. It is interesting to note in the recent reports released by the Department of Infrastructure there is no mention of freight, either by way of critiquing the notion of freight sharing the infrastructure nor how it may add value to the commercial viability of a VFT network linking Brisbane to Melbourne via Sydney and Canberra. Commentary and insights invited.
