Transport plays a fundamental part of our daily lives. In a rapidly growing city, getting transport right is the foundation for jobs growth and protecting our lifestyle.
Ipswich City Council has developed the City of Ipswich Transport Plan (iGO) that outlines Council’s aspirations to advance Ipswich’s transport system and to guide future transport policy, resourcing and investment decision making.
The draft iGO was publicly released in late 2015 and has now been finalised based on feedback received from the community and other key stakeholders.
Facilitating travel mode choices
Reducing Ipswich residents' dependency on their cars by facilitating competitive, attractive and sustainable travel mode choices through the provision of quality transport infrastructure and incentives/disincentives.
Transport and land use
Fostering the development of strong, compact and connected mixed use activity centres and complete communities.
Clever new thinking and strong leadership to make sustainable decisions. This includes new non-traditional attitudes such as:
iGO is a strategic long-term plan with a range of policy focus areas, network maps and actions. The outcomes of iGO will be delivered over the coming years to shape a sustainable transport future for Ipswich.
In the near future, Council will develop more detailed Network Action Plans and Operational Strategies. First up will be the Active Transport Action Plan that will focus on transport projects and initiatives to encourage more people to walk and cycle.
