A sustainable transport plan for Canberra

The four key objectives of the ACT Government's Integrated Transport Framework are to: 1. promote economic growth, efficiency and effectiveness. 2. develop a transport system that meets the needs of the ACT community. 3. promote a city form and transport options that minimise greenhouse gas emissions; and 4. integrate transport priorities with land use planning. The Sustainable Transport Plan and Integrated Transport Framework document identify a large list of pertinent issues but, in the Property Council's view, they do not integrate transport delivery under the above objectives. Instead, the two documents separate what appear to be departmental and agency responsibilities between Territory and Municipal Services (TAMS) and the ACT Planning and Land Authority (ACTPLA), under the headings of 'road infrastructures, parking, public transport, (and) walking and cycling'. While this analysis is useful, the Property Council considers a whole-of-government approach essential if the plan is to deliver its broader strategic objectives.
