Hobart’s traffic vision

Traffic is at the core of liveability; and Tasmania’s peak motoring body is partnering with the University of Tasmania to create a 30-year vision for Greater Hobart. The RACT is seeking submissions for a comprehensive traffic plan covering 2020-2050. It wants a coordinated plan to manage traffic movements in Hobart. RACT Chief Executive, Harvey Lennon, told The Mercury that traffic congestion must be tackled as population and visitor numbers increase: “As our population continues to grow, we need a long-term vision that takes into account social, economic, infrastructure, urban planning also public and active transport opportunities and initiatives.” He explained one single plan is critical to address long-term problems: “No matter how big or how small the idea, we want to hear it. We believe the answer is out there, but we need to collect and combine the ideas of many into one vision, which we can then lobby for on behalf of all Tasmanians.”
