Truly competitive global cities have the transport infrastructure to match their aspirations. While Sydney’s transport offering continues to improve, we need a step-change in provision if we are to equal the performance and accessibility of our competitors. We must have a cohesive and long-term outlook on transport, with integrated public transport, smart systems with real-time data and innovation in new transport modes, to keep Sydney moving.
A global city needs world-class transport networks and infrastructure. This Taskforce brings together transport-oriented members, utilising their expertise to advocate for improving the efficiency of Sydney’s transport infrastructure and to ensure that future projects are well designed, integrated, funded and delivered. The Taskforce is interested in innovative ideas that will improve the connectivity and access of our city.
To function as a global city, Sydney needs to have a reliable and networked public transport system which services Sydney as a whole. Supporting the delivery of an integrated transport system and ensuring it improves the productivity and liveability of our city are therefore key priorities for the Committee, as are improving transport links for Western Sydney and ensuring projects such as the Sydney CBD and South East Light Rail and the Sydney Metro are delivered in partnership between government, business and the community.
The Transport Taskforce drives this agenda and collaborates with other Taskforces on common areas of interest, including Transport Oriented Development, demand management and infrastructure funding.
