Sustainable transport in the Lower Hunter region

Local Government in the Lower Hunter Region believes that integrated transport planning should be achieved at the regional level, and it is best if the planning is done now before the land development pressures close off the low-cost options. The Paper outlines the opportunities that exist in the Lower Hunter for achieving integrated transport systems and moving towards a target modal split of 20 per cent for public transport. The strategies include regional transport plans, regional transport management, community advocacy, expansion of the regional rail system, intermodal interchanges, enhancement of bus networks, converting old rail corridors and crown road reserves into pathways and cycleways, kerbside lanes used for alternative transport modes instead of parking, and short term demonstration projects.
