Victoria’s Transport Strategy 2030 was first presented to the Future Melbourne Committee in May this year. After considering almost 2000 feedback submissions from the community, the revised strategy will now be leading the agenda discussion at tomorrow evening’s committee meeting.

The Transport Strategy 2030 will aim to provide better infrastructure for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists to navigate the CBD in an efficient, safe and harmonious way; while also boosting the economy by approximately $870 billion (2019 dollars) over the course of a decade.

Several months of community engagement, significant research, and workshops with the Victorian Government and its transport agencies were undertaken to ensure every person has been accounted for in the strategy, and factors such as liveability, productivity, prosperity, and sustainability were addressed.
