Improving Transportation and Mobility

Advocacy and Lobbying:

· We actively advocate and lobby for the provision of appropriate and suitable public transport and infrastructure to support the successful realisation of major regional development projects such as East Werribee Employment Precinct project

Formal Submissions and Papers:

· We regularly prepare and submit detailed and comprehensive formal submissions and papers to State and Federal Governments regarding current and proposed major projects that impact our region

Focus on Public Transport Investment:

· We continually advocate and lobby for the provision of appropriate funding and investment to ensure that the required levels of Public Transport services and infrastructure are first and foremost on the minds of all planning, statutory, government and planning authorities in our region

Roads and Connectivity:

· We advocate and lobby State and Federal Governments to ensure that our highways, freeways, arterial roads, rail and bus services and emerging transit modes are part of Precinct Structure plans (PSP's) and that all key stakeholders are consulted in the early planning stages

Funding Options and Models:

· We provide a broad range of funding and financing options (an integrated transport network both within the city and region) to Government

Future Goals:

We work towards ensuring:

· that all future developments have unimpeded access to roads, rail and bus services and emerging transit modes

· that vehicle parking does not consume all available surface land

· that connectivity is paramount

· that all future plans provide a link to growth, employment and social needs
