Draft Transport Plan 2016-2031

Consultation has concluded

Consultation has now concluded on the Draft Transport Plan.

Over the next 15 years, our transport user volumes are expected to grow by 30 – 40%. This increase means more traffic on our roads, more passengers on our trains, trams and buses, and more trucks moving goods on our roads.

The City of Charles Sturt Transport Plan 2016-2031 sets the direction for transport planning for the next 15 years, providing a framework for developing and investing in transport solutions to respond to key challenges from our community.

We want to hear how the Plan may effect you and how you travel.

  • As a daily commuter on the Outer Harbour/Grange train line, I am concerned about the significant increase in travel time to the CBD under the proposed AdeLINK plans to convert it to a tram line. In my case, I am certain it would double my travel time as a result of needing to pass through several sets of traffic lights on its way past the Entertainment Centre. I fail to see how costs associated with a conversion can be justified for the sake of having a more ‘hip’ form of transport that is slower and smaller than the existing train option. Surely the electrification of the existing train line is a better and more viable alternative than converting it to a tram line? Are there any plans by Charles Sturt Council or the State Government for greater consultation with regular commuters of the Outer Harbour and Grange train line about the proposed AdeLINK tram line conversion plans?

    Thank you for your question. The City of Charles Sturt is currently working with the State Government towards improving our public transport system, including upgrading our existing diesel rail service. Although this process is currently confidential, we can confirm that if conversion of the train to tram service on the outer harbour line is approved, the service timing has been shown to improve in both running time as well as service frequency, which will have significant benefits for the community. These time savings are due to a number of reasons, including acceleration and deceleration of the tram service compared to the diesel trains, and a modern vehicle fleet is expected to improve the amount of users accessing this service.

    Unfortunately at this stage we are not aware of State Government plans to seek further community feedback on AdeLINK proposal.


  • Hi, I'd love to know if there are any plans to improve the trip from the entertainment centre - west. I park there everyday for work, and my choices to leave the entertainment centre to get onto grange road are to drive round to the back exit and then use back streets to go round the new temporary south road roundabout, or to drive a little bit up port road and then turn onto south road and then grange road, both of which are fairly annoying. Is this going to be improved? Is there a better way for me to go that I am missing? Thanks!

    Thank you for your question. Council is currently advocating for improvements at key intersections on the arterial road network to improve traffic flow on both Port Road and Grange Road. The upgrade to South Road is also anticipated to significantly improve traffic congestion around and through South Road.


  • There is no information on how Council determined the findings of the consultation. In the recent past Council has published a report on the consultation survey findings. I would like to see this published on Council's website so everybody can see the survey results, as it is possible that different interpretations of the survey are possible. In the interim prior to possible publishing, would you please send me a copy of the consultation report.
