Congestion in the Greater Hobart area, particularly during morning and afternoon peaks, continues to worsen. With a predicted population increase of 130,000 in Tasmania in the next 30 years, much of which will be in the Greater Hobart area, we need an overarching, cohesive vision for the future. This vision needs to address a range of areas including infrastructure, future mobility and emerging technologies, engineering, urban planning, active and public transport as well as social and economic impacts.
We are currently in the process of assessing and shortlisting submissions. Once refined, a selection of proposals will be published online, as well as presented at a free public forum on 19 November 2018 at the Stanley Burbury Lecture Theatre, University of Tasmania, Sandy Bay. You must register to be able to attend the forum. For details on how to register click here.
University of Tasmania will partner with RACT on the initiative, underpinned by a shared interest in fostering a conversation about how to deliver a future for greater Hobart that is liveable, dynamic and sustainable.
We are also asking people to take part in a survey to provide us with information about how they currently move around Greater Hobart.
