Integrated Transport Strategy

Glen Eira should be a City that is easy to move around with a range of safe travel options and walkable neighbourhoods.

In order to achieve this we have developed a Integrated Transport Strategy which acts as a high-level strategic document that will set Council’s transport priorities, aligned with the 15-year vision for Glen Eira.

VISION - GLEN EIRA 2031
Glen Eira will be a City of child friendly neighbourhoods that are connected to a network of vibrant and well designed walkable activity centres. The community will have a range of travel options to service their daily needs, with a reduction to 50 per cent of trips made by car.

Traffic and parking congestion associated with the growth of Glen Eira is widely recognised as a major and growing problem for our residents. Glen Eira has limited opportunity to increase road capacity, which means that continuing along the trend of increasing car numbers will ultimately lead to a critical tipping point where car travel is no longer an attractive travel choice.

Where congestion cannot be improved, the key will be to improve the speed and safety of other modes such as trams, trains, buses, bikes and walking. Acknowledging that the continued growth in car trips is unsustainable, Council will to work towards increasing the share of active and sustainable modes such as walking, cycling and public transport.

Council adopted the Integrated Transport Strategy at a Council meeting on 12 June 2018.
