Transport strategies and plans
This page provides information about a number of strategies and long-term plans which are being developed.
Metropolitan Planning Strategy
Development of a new metropolitan planning strategy is underway and is being led by the Department of Planning and Community Development. The strategy will help guide Melbourne's growth and change over the next 30-40 years.
The plan will integrate transport and land use planning and is being developed through close collaboration between planning and transport agencies of Government.
A discussion paper, Melbourne, let's talk about the future, was released in October 2012. Submissions closed on 28 March 2013.
Freight and logistics plan
The Victorian Freight and Logistics Plan is currently being developed by the Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure. It will support the growth and development of Victoria’s economy through effective management of the growing freight task.
The plan will examine long term freight forecasts for the State up to 2050 and will use these forecasts to create and model a range of freight scenarios. The freight task in Victoria is expected to double by 2035.
A new cycling strategy has been released for Victoria, which covers cycling for recreation, sport and exercise as well as for affordable and sustainable transport.
