THE Northern Territory Government last week announced the start of consultation for its Integrated Transport Planning and Investment Roadmap, which aims to provide a long term, overarching plan for delivering transport infrastructure and services to drive economic and social growth.
The Roadmap is expected to incorporate number of focused strategies, plans, reviews and reforms covering freight and logistics industry requirements, road and bridge infrastructure provision, motor vehicle registry services, maritime industry reform and passenger transport services and infrastructure needs including aviation and public transport.
"As I announced in my statement to Parliament on 3 December, stakeholders and members of the public are encouraged to provide comments and feedback on the Northern Territory Government's planned Roadmap," Transport Minister Peter Styles said.
"We want to know what Territorians think about Transport in the Northern Territory, and what their issues, concerns and ideas are. We want to capture this feedback so we can better plan for the growth of the Territory.
"The Integrated Transport Planning and Investment Roadmap will provide a plan to develop the Territory's transport infrastructure and services to ensure transport provides the necessary foundations to drive economic growth," Mr Styles said.
More information about the Integrated Transport Planning and Investment Roadmap is available from the Department of Transport website at <http://www.transport.nt.gov.au/>. Feedback can be submitted until 14 February 2014.
