MOVE - DRAFT NORTHERN BEACHES TRANSPORT STRATEGY
The draft strategy is now open for community input and has been a work in progress by the community members of the Transport and Traffic Strategic Reference Group and council staff.
This Strategy provides the framework for the delivery of our future transport network over the next 20 years. The strategy aims to change how we move around on the Northern Beaches and how we travel to other areas in Sydney, so that we can be less reliant on cars and use a more accessible, frequent and better public transport service. It also looks at how we can support active transport into the future, how we manage parking and the road network, as well as how we integrate transport with our new and existing precincts, towns and villages.
This vision will be achieved through focusing on over 30 key directions which support the following themes:
Accessible and Liveable Place
Efficient Road Network
Smart Parking Management.
The Strategy sets ambitious targets for the Northern Beaches by 2038:
A quarter of all trips by public transport
Double the active travel trips; especially for households, commuters and school students
Thirty percent reduction in trips by cars
Thirty percent reduction in Carbon emissions from transport
Towards zero deaths on our roads.
Council will also hold four formal drop-in sessions where transport and planning experts will be available to discuss the strategy, how they will deliver the outcome, and what it will look like and change the way we connect locally and regionally by 2038.
