Trent - you statement is not entirely accurate. Road and rail infrastructures are sometimes state and sometimes federal responsibility - National highways for example are the responsibility of the Commonwealth Government as are national rail infrastructure, ports and airports.

Your analysis of the question type is accurate however. This question is known as a "Dorothy Dix" and is a question prepared by the Minister's staff for a backbencher to ask so that the minister - who already knows it is coming, can look good by answering fully.
