Who is Queensland Department  of Transport and Main Roads (TMR)?

The Department of Transport and Main Roads, known often as TMR, is a department of the Queensland Government, formed in April 2009 with the merger of the Queensland Transport and the Department of Main Roads.[1] The department manages Queensland’s approximately 33,000 km state-controlled road network, which includes more than 6,500 bridges and major culverts.

There are more than 10,000 people working for the Department of Transport and Main Roads.[1] It includes customer service centres, marine operation bases and regional and divisional offices. The department works with Queensland Rail, port authorities, other state and federal government departments, local governments and industry and the community.

Why has TMR become a  NRSPP Core Funding Partner?

The Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has thrown its support behind the National Road Safety Partnership Program (NRSPP) in a bid to help businesses reduce preventable crashes and trauma by 30 per cent in 2020 through a positive road use culture.

“As Queensland’s first Minister for Road Safety, I had the pleasure of launching the Safer Roads, Safer Queensland: Road Safety Strategy 2015–21 and Action Plan 2015–17. This is the first time a Queensland Government has committed to a vision of zero road deaths and serious injuries,” Main Roads and Road Safety Minister Mark Bailey said.

“Importantly, this ambitious vision will only be possible if everyone in our community plays a part. We can’t do this alone – it is only by working together that we can reduce the burden of road trauma on our communities.

“Our support of the NRSPP provides an opportunity to demonstrate the Queensland Government’s commitment to road safety, and keep all Queenslanders safe on our roads.”
