Transport for NSW (TfNSW) has unveiled plans to innovate the State’s transport system to make travel easier, safer and more efficient.

Releasing its updated Future Transport Strategy, the Department said a key feature of the Strategy was the creation of connected “30-minute cities and convenient 15-minute-neighbourhoods”.

“This new Future Transport Strategy considers significant social and economic change brought about by the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, bush fires, floods, and drought,” TfNSw said.

“It addresses these changes and trends such as population growth, energy transition, the digital economy, data management, climate change and evolving technology,” it said.

“It includes ground-breaking ideas to bring our six cities vision to life, connect regional communities, encourage thriving local neighbourhoods, support the freight sector, and build on our economic success.”

TfNSW said the plan laid out 14 strategic directions under three transport outcomes, including connecting customers’ whole lives, successful places for community, and enabling economic activity.

“[The Strategy] shapes our future planning, investment, delivery and operations to ensure our network is more efficient and reliable, giving people more choices and better access,” it said.

“It sets the direction for improving every part of our transport system to benefit our customers, the community and the economy.”

Welcoming the Strategy, the Minister for Infrastructure, Cities and Active Transport, Rob Stokes said it was developed in consultation with other State Departments to ensure integration with Government infrastructure and services.
