Hobart’s transport vision

A bold 30-year plan which presents an exciting blueprint for transport in Hobart, has been unveiled. The RACT vision focuses on a shift from a city dependent on cars, to one that embraces public and active transport. Cross River Ferry services are a central core feature, as are park-and-ride stations. It also encourages cyclists with the removal of on-street parking to allow for upgraded cycleways. Hi-tech is also a feature with self-drive cars, and traffic lights that ‘communicate’ with motor vehicle flow. It is forecast to cost $1.6 billion if fully implemented. RACT Chief Executive, Harvey Lennon, said it has the potential to change Hobart forever. He told The Mercury: “This vision details a range of action items staged across the next 30 years providing a responsive holistic solution that embraces new technology and creates a people-focused accessible city for all to enjoy.”
