A generational upgrade of export infrastructure
A Marshall Liberal Government will give our exporters a competitive advantage by pursuing a new corridor for heavy freight.
Our Globe Link plan will provide a new road, rail and air freight corridor, by-passing existing road and rail corridors through the suburbs and around the Adelaide Hills.
The corridor will avoid the heavily populated areas of the existing freight routes, and will take freight directly to Port Adelaide.
At the Murray Bridge end of the corridor, there is a perfect location to build a new, freight-only airport with no curfew, allowing it to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
By 2050, world food demand will increase by 70%. Much of that will occur in Asia, on our doorstep.
To take full advantage of markets in the region, our businesses need the most efficient and cost-effective way to access those markets.
That’s why we will pursue a generational upgrade of our freight export infrastructure, providing our companies with the competitive advantage they need to get our premium South Australian products to markets across the globe.
