Townsville Integrated Transport Plan

Current Step

Townsville City Council has released the Draft Townsville Integrated Transport Plan: Strategic Directions document, and invites residents to have their say on the initiatives and objectives outlined in the document.

Consultation on the Townsville Integrated Transport Plan: Strategic Directions will open from 9 November 2020 to 4 December 2020.

Background

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: Strategic Directions, a strategic document to guide the future planning of transport.

Building on the initial consultation completed through the Change The Gears Transport Survey (held 6 August 2019 to 2 September 2019), the Draft Townsville Integrated Transport Plan: Strategic Direction document seeks to address social, economic and environmental changes across our region, address new and emerging trends in mobility, and align with overall community needs.

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 are 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)

The Townsville Integrated Transport Plan: Survey Outcomes Report (June 2020) provides an analysis of initial consultation though the Change The Gears Transport Survey and presents implications for our transport network, and is available in the Document library to the right of this page.

Next Steps

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

  • Collate and report on information gathered through community and stakeholder feedback on the Draft Townsville Integrated Transport Plan: Strategic Directions document.
  • Use community and stakeholder feedback to inform the final Townsville Integrated Transport Plan: Strategic Directions document.
  • Submit final Townsville Integrated Transport Plan: Strategic Directions document to Council and release endorsed document to public.
