A TRANSPORT PLAN FOR VICTORIA

An Integrated Transport Plan for Victoria is crucial to the liveability and sustainability of our state

Without an overarching transport plan, the government is leaving easy-to-fix gaps in our transport network, and risks a future of more congestion, pollution and carbon emissions, despite the current levels of investment

Transport is Victoria’s biggest growing source of emissions, but the Victorian government is still spending billions on polluting tollways that will put thousands of more cars on our roads.

The Victorian-Auditor General (see report) has found that the state government has not developed a transport plan that is required by Transport Integration Act.

The Victorian Greens Transport Legislation Amendment (Transport Plan) Bill will require:

  • The Victorian Government to table an integrated transport plan before parliament.
  • A hierarchy of modes of transport and mode share targets in the plan
  • Targets for transport sector emissions reduction and pollution reduction in the transport plan.
