Townsville Integrated Transport Plan

Townsville Integrated Transport Plan

Background

Townsville City Council has completed the Change the Gears Transport Survey. The survey was open from 6 August to the 2 September 2019 and received more than 474 responses.

To make sure the plan aligns with community needs, the survey feedback on our residents’ preferred travel methods is helping us to identify social, economic and environmental changes across our region, and address new and emerging trends in mobility.

The Townsville Integrated Transport Plan: Survey Outcomes Report provides an analysis of the consultation results and presents implications for our transport network.

Next Steps

The Townsville Integrated Transport Plan project will be progressed through the following steps mid-year:

  • Update the Draft TITP Strategic Directions document, including consideration of COVID-19’s impact on the transport system.
  • Issue the Draft TITP Strategic Directions document and commence public consultation.

Project Summary

It is estimated that by 2036, Townsville will attract 42,500 more residents. To support Townsville’s economic growth, Council is creating the Integrated Transport Plan, a strategic document to guide the future planning of transport.

The goal of the Integrated Transport Plan is to create safe and socially inclusive access to services, employment, education and recreational opportunities for all residents and visitors to Townsville. The plan supports effective and sustainable transport that underpins the safety, amenity and economic prosperity of the city and the wider North Queensland region.

Transport methods that will be considered in this plan include:

  • Public transport including bus, train and ferry services
  • Personal vehicles
  • Bike paths
  • Footpaths
  • Freight rail services
  • Personalised transport (such as taxis and Uber)
