About the project

Yarra's population is growing rapidly and our diverse community has complex transport needs. Our road network contains many historical streets and major transit corridors that are used by thousands of people each day.

Yarra's Transport Strategy was developed to meet these challenges and provide a strategic direction for future transport projects in Yarra. It was unanimously adopted by Council in July 2022.

The Transport Strategy is informed by both the Yarra 2036 Community Vision and the Council Plan 2021-25.

Transport Action Plan

Yarra's draft Transport Action Plan outlines the actions that we'll take to meet the ambitious targets in the Transport Strategy. It sets out a transparent framework to inform decision-making about transport in Yarra between 2023 and 2033.

This plan will help to free up space on our streets, provide safe and fair access for everyone and have a positive impact on the environment.
