Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Thank-you for your feedback. Following significant community consultation, including stakeholder gatherings, pop-ups and more than a thousand submissions, Council has adopted its Noosa Transport Strategy 2017-2027.

Noosa's transport vision is one where "Noosa Shire enjoys and efficient, free flowing, innovative transport system that enhances resident and visitor experiences, and results in sustainable environmental outcomes"

The Noosa Transport Strategy 2017-2027 proposes the following strategies over the next 1-2 years (2017/18 & 2018/19). (See document library for a copy of the Final Strategy)

  1. Investigate Park-and-Ride services and conduct a detailed study to determine the demand, preferred location, and likely capacity of a successful Park-and-Ride facility with links to shuttle services.
  2. Subject to investigation, and in keeping with the Noosa look and feel, introduce car parking management controls (e.g. paid parking) in congested areas. Paid parking may allow for variable controls for residents and non-residents, peak and off-peak periods, and paid and free parking at Park-and-Ride facilities.
  3. Subject to discussion with TransLink, trial a high frequency Noosa style shuttle bus to service key destinations.
  4. Implement Walk-and-Ride to Schools Programs, with supportive schools that experience significant traffic and congestion issues.
  5. Investigate the feasibility of priority transport lanes for sustainable transport modes (buses, bicycles, scooters, electric vehicles etc.).

    A Transport Policy has been developed in light of deliberation, research and community input. The Policy was adopted by Council in November 2016 (now available in the document library to the right of this screen). The Policy includes key principles and desired outcomes. A discussion paper will be presented to the community for further comment and input in early 2017.

The survey results, combined with direct submissions received by Council, and the stakeholder engagement undertaken by Parsons Brinckerhoff will help shape the 20 year vision for the Transport Strategy.
