The transport system in New South Wales (NSW) is on the cusp of being transformed. We are more mobile than ever and our lives more interconnected. Technology is equipping us with new ways to travel and plan our journeys, and new ways to deliver services to our customers.
Future Transport starts with a vision of the future we want, so we can address challenges as they arise and meet our economic, social and environmental goals. Future Transport will not predict what is to come, but will ensure we are ready to seize opportunities to harness the rapid changes in technology and innovation and create an efficient and reliable transport system for our customers.
Future Transport is engaging extensively with customers across Greater Sydney and Regional NSW to raise awareness, stimulate discussion and place the customer’s voice at the centre of the Strategy and its Plans. We are keen to hear from you before we finalise the Strategy and Plans in early 2018.
To date, more than 5,000 people have responded to our online surveys, and more than 40,000 people have been involved in digital or face-to-face consultations. We have held 27 engagement sessions with councils, business associations and community groups in rural and Regional NSW including Inverell, Wauchope, Griffith and Cobar, as well as business roundtables to discuss the future of connected and automated vehicles and placemaking.
Future Transport is the NSW Government’s 2017 update of the 2012 Long Term Transport Master Plan. The Draft Strategy and its supporting Plans respond to the significant changes occurring today, and build on the achievements of the Master Plan, which established a once in a generation transport and infrastructure investment pipeline for the state.
