Keywords: Safe Systems & Transport Planning
Submission Date: 2017 Conference: ARSC
Transport for NSW has commenced refreshing the strategic approach to long-term transport planning in NSW with the release of the Future Transport Plan. The University of Melbourne was commissioned to identify opportunities to refresh the current NSW Road Safety Strategy, and to better integrate it with transport planning outcomes. Specific opportunities identified relate to integrated land use and transport, transport modal shift, enhancing accessibility, and intelligent transport systems. A new framework for an integrated Safe System is also presented, which will influence development of a new five-year Road Safety Plan to underpin the Future Transport Plan.
