Have your say on the future of transport in Woollahra

Our community recognises the important role transport plays in creating vibrant and liveable cities and places, including for the many people who live, work, study in and visit Woollahra.

That's why Council has created a Draft Integrated Transport Strategy (ITS), to set out a vision for a more accessible municipality where active, sustainable and efficient modes of transport are the most convenient choice for most trips.

Council and the community created this vision through a series of engagement activities which included surveys, pop-ups and a Social Pinpoint map. We are now seeking your feedback on the draft report, via a short submission form, before Friday 21 May 2021.

One of the key objectives of the Draft ITS is to modify travel behaviour to reduce congestion and enhance liveability in Woollahra. This means addressing the many transport challenges facing the Woollahra municipality, including:

  • the heavy dependence on cars for primary transportation,
  • an incomplete active transport network that doesn’t support trips to shops,
    schools and destinations,
  • access for children and people with disabilities and mobility issues,
  • pedestrian and cyclist safety,
  • traffic congestion,
  • excessive speed resulting in car crashes,
  • increased construction and delivery vehicles,
  • distance to jobs, services and amenities.

Council's Draft ITS sets out the key principles, objectives, targets, policy commitments and actions relating to access and mobility, public transport, active transport and roads and parking for our area. It aims to reduce dependence on private vehicles by promoting and supporting viable public and active transport services. The document also identifies four key signature projects that Council will pursue to support our transport objectives:

  • The Paddington Greenway (Paddington Greenway Feasibility Study)
  • The Knox Street Plaza (Double Bay Pedestrianisation Study)
  • Transvaal Avenue Pedestrianisation (Double Bay Pedestrianisation Study)
  • 30km/hr or 40km/hr zone for the Double Bay commercial centre
