Dear Sir or Madam

Please find attached our preliminary response to the Impact Assessment Study (IAS) Supplementary Report for the proposed Port of Brisbane extension.

The issue of Traffic is still inappropriately addressed; A per Queensland Transport (Attachment 1, 9th Oct), Dept. Main Roads (17th Oct), Brisbane City Council (Traffic, 9th Oct) and our submission, a number of traffic issues raised have not been addressed.


The matter of traffic is a major issue for the community. Currently the Port of Brisbane would be unable to produce a defensible case to show they have adequately addressed the Terms of Reference and principles of ESD, when the issue of Transport is examined closely. Undesirable, but likely, is the community will seek a remedy in the political and legal arena to redress negative impacts.

Yours sincerely


Simon Baltais
