Development of a Transport Strategy for the City of Hobart

The City of Hobart is developing a Transport Strategy that will plan for Hobart’s future transport needs and guide how improved transport will be delivered through until 2030. The strategy will support growth in the city’s population and the economy.

The community's input informed the development of the draft Transport Strategy to address the most pressing issues within the control of the City of Hobart. During 2016 and 2017 the City undertook an extensive engagement process and the community contributed issues, concerns and ideas. A summary of the community engagement is available here.


The draft Transport Strategy was presented in a report at the Council Meeting on 9 July 2018. The report can be viewed under the City Infrastructure Committee Agenda on the City of Hobart website. Alternatively the draft Transport Strategy can be downloaded here.

The Council has now approved the Draft Transport Strategy to be open for community and stakeholder engagement. To have your say, please view the Draft Transport Strategy and provide your feedback in the online form.

To provide more information about the draft Transport Strategy, the City of Hobart will be holding a series of information sessions during the week commencing 23 July. To find out more view the key dates or visit the City of Hobart website.

  • The June 2017 issue of 'City News' said that the Background Paper for Module 4 (Local area traffic issues) was available and that comments had to be made before the end of July 2017. I can't see the background paper or anywhere that comments can be made. Many thanks, Sue Headley.

    Hi Sue, 

    Our apologies, the survey and background paper have been re-checked and are now currently available.  Thank-you for bringing this to our attention.  Please let us know if there are any more issues. 

    Kind regards,

    The survey for Module 1- Freight, Port and Air is now complete, however there is still opportunity to get involved in this engagement.

    We have recently uploaded the background paper for Module 2 - Private Transport.  This can be found in the Related Documents section of the Your Say page.

    The survey relating to Module 2 will be open for submissions in the next couple of weeks and will run until late March 2017, so there is plenty of time for you to have your say.
