What is the Integrated Transport Strategy?

    The Integrated Transport Strategy is a key informing strategy under Council’s Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework. The Strategy outlines the key outcomes which will contribute to the convenient and efficient movement of people and goods throughout Sutherland Shire.

    How does the Integrated Transport Strategy impact me?

    The population of the Sutherland Shire is predicted to grow by more than 30,000 people by 2036, without appropriate planning, population growth will exacerbate many of the current transport challenges. The ITS outlines a long term approach for planning a safe, accessible and sustainable transport system to meet community needs into the future.

    Where can I find more detail about what specific projects are planned for Integrated Transport?

    A detailed Implementation Plan that includes timeframes, priorities, resources, and responsibilities will be developed to help with delivery of the Strategy.  The activities and projects that Council will deliver will be detailed in Council’s four year Delivery Program and annual Operational Plans. More information on any specific projects can be obtained by contacting Council’s Traffic and Public Domain Unit on 02 9710 0498.
