By 2036, the number of journeys across Greater Sydney is projected to increase to 15 million trips a day (up 36 per cent from 2016). To address this increase, Future Transport 2056 includes plans for quick, efficient and more localised connections to jobs, schools and services. A key outcome is for more people to have 30-minute public transport access to one of the three metropolitan centres/cluster and to services in their nearest strategic centre seven days a week. This requires the integration of land use, transport and infrastructure planning. Co-locating jobs and services, improving transport efficiency and creating more efficient freight networks will also improve productivity. Enhancing transport connections to adjacent cities and regional NSW will strengthen economic links and provide more opportunities for long-term growth management.
