NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan PDF Print
4 December 2012
The NSW Government is in the process of developing a new Long Term Transport Master Plan for NSW. This is an opportunity to advocate for a fairer transport system that meets the needs of all people within our society.

 Stage 1: Discussion Paper

In February 2012 Transport for NSW released a Discussion Paper to inform the development of the Long Term Transport Master Plan. The NCOSS Submission to the Long Term Transport Master Plan for NSW Discussion Paper outlined short and long-term actions needed in order to develop a transport system that is available, accessible and affordable to all people.

A number of organisations represented on the NCOSS Transport Policy Advice Group also made submissions to the Long Term Transport Master Plan discussion paper. Links to these submissions are below. (Note that the views expressed in these submissions do not necessarily reflect those of NCOSS.)

Stage 2:  Draft Long Term Transport Master Plan

Following submissions to the discussion paper, Transport for NSW released a draft Master Plan in early September 2012.

NCOSS welcomed the inclusion of 'reducing social disadvantage' as one of eight objectives for the NSW transport system, but argued that more rigorous consultation mechanisms and decision-making processes are needed if the Government is sincere about achieving this objective. We expressed disappointment in the plan's failure to adequately prioritise public transport, suggesting that clear also leadership is needed to support a transition to a low car use society. Our full response to the Draft Long Term Transport Master Plan can be downloaded from our website.

Stage 3:  Final Long Term Transport Master Plan

The NSW Government will release the final Long Term Transport Master Plan in late 2012. Visit the Master Plan website for updates and further information.

Stage 4:  Final Long Term Transport Master Plan

Following the development of the NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan, Transport for NSW will develop detailed regional transport plans.

Consultation Process

The consultation process established to support the development the process includes:

  • The Establishment of four Advisory Groups: Four advisory groups have been established to inform the development of the Long Term Transport Master Plan and met bi-monthly in 2012. NCOSS sits on the Customer and Community Advisory Group. The other three Advisory Groups are: Industry; Local Government; and Transport Specialists.
  • Regional Forums: 14 regional forums were held across the State between February and May 2012, attended by more than 1,000 people.
  • Website: The Transport Master Plan website provides regular updates on the Master Plan Process, including highlighting opportunities for online submissions and comments.
