The NSW Government has released a discussion paper as part of the process to develop the NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan that will address key transport challenges that face the State over the next 20 years.


The discussion paper examines key transport issues, challenges and opportunities for Sydney and the regions taking into account the need to support population increases, job creation, economic growth and land use strategies.


The submissions process is part of a wide consultation program which includes Transport for NSW forums with key stakeholders in 10 regions and Sydney, regular strategy meetings with advisory groups, one on one consultation, an online survey and social media.


A draft NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan will be released for public comment mid-year, with the final Plan due for completion in November 2012.


Following the release of the NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan, Transport for NSW will develop detailed regional transport plans.


The discussion paper, details on how to make a submission and more information about the NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan is available at Submissions are due by 27 April 2012.
