Northern Integrated Transport Plan

The Northern Integrated Transport Plan is a collaborative initiative of the Tasmanian Government and Northern Tasmanian Development (NTD), including the eight member councils (Break O'Day, Dorset, Flinders, George Town, Launceston, Meander Valley, Northern Midlands and West Tamar).

The Plan provides a strategic framework to address transport issues in the Northern Region over the next twenty years, focusing on the future of the Northern Region and the challenges and oppertunities which may exist.

The Plan is part of an ongoing process to provide a strategic and integrated approach to transport across Tasmania's three region. The State Government has worked with Local Government in the South and North-West to produce the Southern Intergrated Transport Plan 2010 and Cradle Coast Integrated Transport Strategy 2006.

The existing Steering Committee will meet within 3 months of the release of the plan to agree to an implementation plan setting out responsibilities and timeframes. A joint Implementation Committee will meet annually to assess and report on the progress of the actions identified. The Plan will be reviewed regularly to ensure it remains relevant.
