Principal Freight Network 2021 Road, Rail and Places

The Principal Freight Network (PFN) is a strategic network of current and recognised future freight places and connecting movement corridors (road and rail) which are nationally, state and/or regionally significant. The PFN places and corridors are where freight of significant quantity, value or importance is generated, stored, distributed, handled or carried.

This collection of datasets that depict PFN road and rail corridors and freight places (areas).

PFN Road Corridors are classified as: PFN Road: a road corridor that forms part of the PFN. PFN Road - committed future removal: a road corridor that will be removed from the PFN upon the completion of the relevant funded project. PFN Road - in delivery: a road corridor that has committed funding and is in delivery. PFN Road - planned: a potential road corridor identified for inclusion on the future PFN once funded. PFN Road - area for potential PFN (polygons): an area identified that will contain a future road corridor that will form part of the PFN once funded.

PFN Rail Corridors are classified as: PFN Rail: a rail corridor that forms part of the PFN. PFN Rail - in delivery: a rail corridor on the network that has committed funding and is in delivery. PFN Rail - planned: a potential rail corridor identified for inclusion on the PFN once funded. PFN Rail - area for potential PFN (polygons): an area identified that will contain a future rail corridor that will form part of the PFN once funded.

PFN Places are classified as: PFN Place: a place where goods of significant value, quantity or importance is generated, stored, distributed, handled or carried. PFN Place - Planned: a planned freight place once funded.

The PFN was reviewed and updated in 2021 through consultation with local government and industry, building on the previous PFN which was last updated in 2013.
