NSW to consult on master transport plan


Forums will be held across NSW to ensure businesses and organisations have their say on proposed transport plan

January 17, 2012

Transport planning forums will be held across NSW to ensure businesses and organisations have their say on the future of transport.

Ten regions outside of Sydney will host at least one forum where key stakeholders will be consulted by Transport for NSW as part of a year-long process to develop a NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan.

The forums will be held after a discussion paper is released next month and the feedback will be used to inform development of a draft of the plan.

A draft of the plan will be released in May, with the final plan released in November.
The plan and the discussion paper will each include a section devoted to major state significant transport issues.

"The NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan will provide clear and detailed information about what needs to happen over the next 20 years and build on the government’s existing short-term commitments, allowing the people of NSW to hold us to account and track our progress," Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian says.

"It is crucial that as we develop a plan for NSW we consult with those people in regional and rural areas who are affected by the quality of the transport network – from councils and community groups to public transport commuters, freight companies and truck drivers."

Minister for Roads and Ports Duncan Gay says the plan will build on the government’s infrastructure commitments made in this year’s budget, which includes a $4.2 billion investment in the regional and rural road network.
