Transport for NSW is taking a new approach to long term transport planning through the Future Transport Strategy.
They are creating a 40 year plan that will focus on the major technological, economic and social changes that lie ahead.
The first stage of the Future Transport Strategy website is now live, providing insights into the transport planning process and a snapshot of what has been delivered since the 2012 Long Term Transport Master Plan. Unlike the 2012 Master Plan, this Strategy will be a ‘living document’ that is regularly updated through the website, rather than a static document that is updated every five years.
In 2017, this website will incorporate new interactive transport planning tools that will allow the community and industry to have their say in shaping the 40-year transport plan. The Future Transport Strategy is also strongly linked to our Future Technology Roadmap, which provides a pathway for capitalising on the technologies that will help us create a better, more personalised transport service for our customers.
NSW Government agencies are working together to ensure the Future Transport Strategy is coordinated with other long terms plans supporting the growth and prosperity of NSW, including the Greater Sydney Commission’s District Plans and the updates of A Plan for Growing Sydney and Infrastructure NSW’s State Infrastructure Strategy 2017.
In 2017, Transport for NSW will be talking to communities, industry and other key stakeholders about how they can get involved and have their say on the Future Transport Strategy.
