Council seeks ideas on integrated transport plan
Logan City Council is seeking community feedback to inform the development of Way2Go – Connecting Logan, a new integrated transport plan for the city.
Council has identified the need to future-proof Logan’s transport system, ensuring it can meet current and future transport needs of the community.
With Logan’s population expected to grow by 272,200 people over the next 25 years, the plan will play a critical role in defining the strategic direction of Logan’s transport system through to 2041.
City of Logan Mayor Luke Smith is calling on motorists, cyclists, pedestrians and public transport users to share their experiences and ideas to improve Logan’s transport system.
“I encourage all members of the community to take part in the Way2Go – Connecting Logan community survey and share their ideas for a better connected community,” Mayor Luke Smith said.
“It is vital that the plan reflects the needs of the community, industry and transport users all across the city and that we have a plan that addresses the challenges and embraces the opportunities of the future,” he said.
“An integrated plan means we will look at all modes of transport, as well as transport priorities that are not infrastructure related, such as travel demand management, embracing new technologies and integrating land use and transport planning.”
Logan City Council City Infrastructure Committee Chairman Cr Phil Pidgeon said Way2Go – Connecting Logan would be an important advocacy tool to help ensure Logan received its fair share of funding.
“Transport provision is a shared responsibly across all levels of government, and there is only so much Council can fund or provide itself,” Cr Pidgeon said.
“This plan will help inform our efforts to ensure vital projects are funded to address population growth, service new and existing communities and support our economy.”
The community survey has been launched following workshops with internal stakeholders, business, industry and community groups in early October 2017.
