On 31st July 2014, the Premier of Queensland, the Honourable Campbell Newman, released his Government’s vision
for the future of Queensland - “The Queensland Plan - Queenslanders’ 30-year Vision”.
This plan is based on an extensive community engagement, started in February 2013, with over 80,000
Queenslanders contributing their visions for Queensland’s future.
This consultation resulted in nine “Foundation Areas” as a basis for planning for the future as shown on this
graphic from the Queensland Plan.
This graphic (also from the Queensland Plan) shows the level of importance those involved in the
formulation of this plan attached to each of these Foundation Areas.
It should be noted that Regions (Building thriving communities) and Infrastructure (Being connected) are both in
the “high - high” quadrant of this chart.
These two Foundation Areas are interconnected as better Infrastructure (transport, communications etc.) help a
community grow and thrive. A thriving community pays for the Infrastructure. The other Foundation
Areas, in turn, benefit.
An extensive network of MonoCab VRT track would greatly support the realisation of the Queensland
As well as providing the passenger and freight transport needs of a thriving community, the track of the MonoCab
VRT provides a platform to support conduits/pipes for communication cables, water, gas, electricity etc. if
