The draft Yarra Transport Strategy is included at the next Yarra Council
meeting on Tuesday 12 July 2022.
You can read the report and attachments for Item 8.1 Yarra Transport
Strategy at this link:
_How to show your support: _
This council meeting is being held both online and in person. If you
wish to attend, ask a question or make a submission, you can do so
either online or in person as well 24 hours prior to the council meeting.
Council Meeting Registration:
_Possible submission/question suggestions:
- Will the City of Yarra support all 15 policies outlined in the draft
Moving Forward - Yarra's Transport Strategy 2022 and it's objectives?
- Will the City of Yarra be bold in implementing this strategy and not
dilute it with populist-driven decisions when developing the action plan?
- Will the City of Yarra provide solutions that solve issues that
stymied the City of Yarra Bike Strategy 2010 – 2015 and the City of
Yarra Bicycle Refresh 2015 so this strategy can actually be delivered?
eg: support strong council inter-agency networking that strengthens
advocacy, legislation, safety, planning, funding and implementation
between Melbourne 9 (M9), PTV, VicRoads, Department of Transport, nearby
councils, state and federal governments?
- The active transport mix is rapidly changing in Yarra. Will City of
Yarra monitor the increasing use of e-bikes, e-cargobikes, alongside
ongoing e-scooter trials that clearly illustrate people want more safe
- Recently released Census 2021 data illustrates that Yarra suburbs have
roughly double the Australian average for rental properties and one of
highest populations of people aged under 30, will the City of Yarra
support this demographic with their future transport choices?
- and of course, anything relevant you'd like to add!
