Let’s work together for better transport choices

To do this, we’ve prepared a draft Transport Strategy based on community feedback. The Strategy will guide Council’s priorities and decisions over the next ten years, including:

  • How we can work towards providing more transport choices that work for more people
  • How we can address challenges like climate change by providing more transport options and connections in Hume
  • How we can partner with State Government, developers and others to improve transport connections throughout Hume
  • How we can best embrace the opportunities that will come from new technologies.

What do you think of the draft?

The draft Transport Strategy envisages a better future where there are far greater transport choices available for our community that contributes to a more vibrant and liveable municipality.

The draft Strategy strives to improve transport choices through a range of strategic directions and key actions around:

  • Improving the quality and extent of walking and cycling paths to provide convenient transport choices, especially to local shops and schools
  • Getting Hume ready for new and emerging transport technology and choices
  • Advocating to state government on issues Council doesn’t control, like better public transport and major road upgrades
  • Making the most of local road spaces for movement as well as providing spaces to meet, rest and play.
