Integrated transport strategy
The Glen Eira City Council, Victoria, Integrated Transport Strategy recognises that Glen Eira should be a city that is easy to move around in, with a range of safe travel options and walkable neighbourhoods.
Achieving this through a range of projects, policies, pilots and advocacy items, Council’s strategy will also address the increasing congestion and parking concerns facing Glen Eira and wider Melbourne.
Mayor, Tony Athanasopoulos, said a goal had been set to strive for a 50:50 mode share of car and non-car trips by 2031.
“To achieve this goal, the Strategy has identified ways to increase walking, cycling and public transport trips and efficiency on key driving routes.”
The Strategy identifies four key improvements that would support the transition onto non-car modes:
1. new light rail services.
2. a new premium bus service.
3. premium cycling infrastructure along key arterial roads.
4. significant upgrades to Caulfield Station and its wider precinct with the removal of remaining level crossings.
Mayor Athanasopoulos said these are City-defining, once in a generation projects that will have lasting benefits for Glen Eira and wider Melbourne.
