Years 11 - 20

Indicative cost with major infrastructure: $1.5 billion
Indicative cost without major infrastructure: $214 million

  • If a shift to mode share of 20% has not been achieved in years 1-10, deliver a previously planned and costed major infrastructure project to significantly reduce the volume of vehicles travelling into and through the CBD, particularly on Macquarie and Davey streets.
  • If a mode share of 20% has been achieved, continue to reduce interaction between people and vehicles in the city, including the significant reduction of people from Macquarie and Davey streets through delivering better active transport options between the waterfront and CBD.
  • Extend ferry network to up to eight terminals, each within a kilometre of key cycleways and footpaths, stretching north and south of the city. Ferries should also have capacity for bicycles.
    • It is important that this network is funded sufficiently to enable it to reach full potential, which includes high-quality vessels and terminal services. It is also contingent on a review conducted during years 6-10.
  • Commence operation of an innovative northern suburbs public transport option that concentrates on high-density routes.
  • Establish comprehensive prioritisation measures for shared mobility on key arterials such as the Southern Outlet, Tasman Hwy and Brooker Hwy (eg. ride share, car share, public transport and multiple occupancy vehicles).
  • Begin to integrate low/zero emission and autonomous vehicles for public transport with a particular focus on connecting with other transport options.
  • Continue to concentrate housing development in urban areas and in higher density hubs in outlying areas.
  • Continue to retrofit existing road infrastructure to provide connections to active transport spines.
  • Invest in regional transport hubs to stimulate shared spaces and residential growth.
  • Continue to encourage the development of low cost housing in central locations. Increase investment in Intelligent Transport Systems that allow vehicles to communicate with traffic signals and other infrastructure to facilitate efficient and safe movement.
  • Continued enhancement of ‘mobility as a service’ as new modes of transport become available.
