Australia: NSW Government Presents Future Transport Strategy

The New South Wales (NSW) government has unveiled a new Future Transport Strategy that plans to make transport in the Australian state quicker, more convenient and safer.

The strategy aims to create connected 30-minute cities and convenient 15-minute neighbourhoods.

Premier Dominic Perrottet said:

“This strategy sets out a new vision for transport in our growing and changing state. This is about ensuring our transport network will be fit-for-purpose into the future and gives people more choice, shorter wait times and quicker trips.

“We are laying the foundations for our future transport network now so we can keep building a brighter future for the people of NSW. We all have busy lives and this is a vision to make it easier and more convenient for people to move about entire state whether it be in a city or in the regions.”

The Future Transport Strategy will shape the state’s future planning, investment and delivery to give people more choice and greater access to sustainable transport.

Initially, ‘Future Transport Hubs’ will be piloted in Parramatta, Chatswood, Wollongong and Coffs Harbour to provide commuters with a consolidated range of transport options.

These hubs will then serve as a blueprint that will enable the state to continually adapt its transport network for the evolving needs of the community.

Minister for Infrastructure, Cities and Active Transport Rob Stokes said:

“Train stations shouldn’t just be for trains, roads shouldn’t just be for cars, they are places for people and our whole transport network should adapt to our citizens various and changing needs. We understand people lead busy lives which is why we’re piloting convenient one-stop-shops for all your services at transport hubs by harnessing developments in data and technology.

“The pandemic has seen demand for walking and cycling infrastructure soar, and outdoor spaces valued more than ever. Our vision for 15 minute neighbourhoods will also improve health and wellbeing outcomes, and ensure local communities thrive.”
