Transport planning in South Australia

The Government recognises that not all South Australian's fare equally in terms of transport and planning, and some experience acute and disproportionate disadvantage. This is why social inclusion is a central theme. The Draft Transport Plan is a key component of the transport planning process and seeks to provide the direction and framework for decision-making across all modes of transport. The incorporation of land use planning approaches and innovations on more traditional transport solutions aims to maximise access to infrastructure and services in order to widen transport choices in both rural and metropolitan areas. Emphasis is on fair access for pedestrians, cyclists and more sustainable transport modes generally. Public transport is given greater priority than in the past -at intersections, on the transport system and for Government expenditure -as is rail and shipping for the movement of freight. The State Government will need community involvement and partnership with other Governments and the private sector to achieve the vision of a sustainable transport system for South Australia.
