Purpose of the Transport and Movement Strategy

The Transport and Movement Strategy seeks to develop an integrated and sustainable approach towards transport and movement in West Torrens and to ensure it meets the needs of the local community, businesses, visitors, and for those travelling in, out and around West Torrens.

The transport network is continually evolving as it responds to, and strives to meet, the needs of the community. It is timely to update that Strategy to take into account emerging issues and needs of a changing community. Importantly, this Strategy provides a coordinated framework to deliver outcomes in a collaborative, efficient and transparent manner, achieve strategic outcomes and cost savings, while also serving as a support tool for funding submissions.

Key aims of this new Strategy:

  • Revise the existing Plan to address emerging trends and issues
  • Provide direction to meet the needs of the community
  • Support a safe, connected and sustainable city
  • Bring a focus on active transport
  • Guide road investments
  • Secure funding opportunities


Emerging issues

West Torrens is experiencing changes to its urban landscape and population and this Strategy aims to address emerging issues and to continually improve upon our network and services. Some key issues that this Strategy aims to address are:

  • A growing, and ageing population with a range of mobility needs, travel patterns and safety considerations
  • Experiencing a high level of urban infill, redevelopment of land, and changes to land uses
  • Integrating other infrastructure projects, such as the North-South Corridor and changes at Adelaide Airport
  • Greening and cooling of our neighbourhoods
  • Opportunities for sustainable road construction
  • Enhancing efficient and safe movement of freight vehicles
  • Supporting tourism
  • Encouraging walking, cycling and public transportation
  • Adoption of smart technologies.


Guiding principles

A set of guiding principles has been developed to address the emerging issues and to inform priorities for action:

  • Safety - Enhance the safety for all users of the transport network.
  • Accessibility - Provide transport options and network routes to enhance the community's ability to move in, out and around West Torrens for people of all abilities.
  • Environmental sustainability and healthy communities - Create a greener, cooler and convenient network that supports walking, wheeling* and public transportation.
  • Productivity and business - Foster efficient movement of freight and business traffic to support local business and community services.
  • Emerging technology - Explore technological options to enhance the community's transport and movement experiences.
