Years 6 - 10

Indicative cost: $31 million

  • Continue to deliver infrastructure projects that reduce interaction between people and vehicles in the CBD (eg. improve the active transport connection between the waterfront and CBD).
  • Establish transport hubs at key destinations including Royal Hobart Hospital, Hobart Airport, University of Tasmania.
  • Establish prioritisation measures for shared mobility on key arterials (eg. ride share, car share, public transport and multiple occupancy vehicles).
  • Create more shared, low-speed environments in the CBD.
  • Implement a specific northern suburbs transit corridor that concentrates on a high density route, which could utilise a section of the existing rail corridor, but then use on-road infrastructure to terminate in the CBD. If the existing rail corridor is to be used it requires higher residential density to support a mass transit solution. In addition, a Macquarie Point terminus would be too far from other transit options in the CBD.
  • Concentrate housing development in existing urban areas and commence the development of higher density hubs in outlying areas.
  • Continue to operate a ferry network of up to three routes and conduct a thorough review of the service, including impact on the road network.
  • Continue work on active transport spines in the CBD, including from the Rivulet Track to Intercity Cycleway, Elizabeth St south and north-bound and from Sandy Bay to the CBD.
  • Continue to retrofit existing infrastructure to provide connections to active transport spines.
  • Begin to focus investment around regional transport hubs to stimulate shared spaces and residential growth.
  • Continue to plan and source funding for a major infrastructure project to significantly reduce the volume of traffic travelling into and through the CBD, if a shift to mode share of 20% is not achieved in the first 10 years of this plan.
