  • 4. Presentation TitleAdelaide’s North-South Corridor : Integrating Transport & Land Use Planning 4 Adelaide early 1900’s •Focus on Adelaide CBD and the Port of Adelaide •Development around public transport lines - Railways - Horse Tramways •A series of ‘Villages’ - Mixed use - Close to employment, shopping, etc.

  • 7. Presentation TitleAdelaide’s North-South Corridor : Integrating Transport & Land Use Planning Adelaide 1958 •Adelaide’s growth still confined - Primarily below Grand Junction Road and the southern hills escarpment •Growth in motor vehicle ownership •Growth in manufacturing •Desire for greater home ownership (single houses on large blocks)
  • 8. Presentation TitleAdelaide’s North-South Corridor : Integrating Transport & Land Use Planning Adelaide 1958 •Trip distribution in 1958 was still primarily CBD focussed •Trams in Adelaide still formed a network spanning most of suburban Adelaide •Key trip destinations outside the CBD where to the growing industrial/ manufacturing centres
  • 9. Presentation TitleAdelaide’s North-South Corridor : Integrating Transport & Land Use Planning •The Adelaide Metropolitan area now stretches some 90 km • From Gawler in the north • To Aldinga in the south • The population of Adelaide is now approximately 1.3 million. • The CBD is still a significant focus for employment, retail, higher education and entertainment • Generally low density residential development across the suburbs • In 2012, Adelaide was ranked as Australia’s most liveable city in the Property Council of Australia’s My City liveability survey. • ` Adelaide 2014 State of Australian Cities 2013
  • 10. Presentation TitleAdelaide’s North-South Corridor : Integrating Transport & Land Use Planning •We are now experiencing greater congestion on our roads (particularly morning & evening peaks) •Heavy reliance on car-based travel • Limited public transport infrastructure • Many outer suburban communities are effectively transport disadvantaged and highly vulnerable to the effects of fuel prices •There is no identifiable North-South road corridor to service this elongated city (or to efficiently distribute freight) Adelaide 2014
  • 11. Presentation TitleAdelaide’s North-South Corridor : Integrating Transport & Land Use Planning •We need a north-south arterial route for freight movements within the metropolitan area. •Such a route would provide a continuous link between the northern and southern suburbs (and the CBD) •The current road network services commuters, business and industry, carrying up to 88,000 vehicles per day & 16% commercial traffic •Traffic volumes are expected to increase by up to 6% per annum up to 2020 Why do we need a North-South Corridor ?
  • 12. Presentation TitleAdelaide’s North-South Corridor : Integrating Transport & Land Use Planning Why are we undertaking this study? Port of Adelaide Adelaide International Airport Considering the freight transport flows:  red interstate to/from Port of Adelaide  blue interstate to/from western sector  green between two key sectors  orange urban freight distribution  purple between western & southern sectors. Why do we need a North-South Corridor ? Adelaide CBD

  • 46. Presentation TitleAdelaide’s North-South Corridor : Integrating Transport & Land Use Planning The Torrens to Torrens project has highlighted the complexities of upgrading arterial roads in highly urbanised areas: • Dealing with conflicting objectives between road operation & surrounding land use • Re-balancing the interests of local communities with the wider community of road users • Early & on-going community engagement to understand impacts, risks & mitigation strategies • Addressing social impacts: - Relocation & disruption - Community severance - Loss of services & community facilities through land acquisition - Noise from the road - Visual impacts Lessons Learnt – Torrens to Torrens Project
  • 47. Presentation TitleAdelaide’s North-South Corridor : Integrating Transport & Land Use Planning 1. Have a vision – Have a plan 2. Understand the politics 3. Funding is critical 4. Take a more integrated and ‘holistic’ approach 5. Consider the community 47 Five Key Lessons
  • 48. Presentation TitleAdelaide’s North-South Corridor : Integrating Transport & Land Use Planning 1. Have a Vision – Have a Plan • Understand why you want to undertake a major road project • Clearly express the vision • Develop the overall plan – it is not just about the ‘road’ • Context is everything – solutions must be developed to address the specific local circumstances • Stage the project – break it into component parts (you can’t generally do it all at once) 48 Five Key Lessons
  • 49. Presentation TitleAdelaide’s North-South Corridor : Integrating Transport & Land Use Planning 2. Understand the Politics • Commonwealth – they control the funding • State – they ‘create & drive’ the project • Local Government – projects such as this ‘divide’ communities – you need to understand & clearly articulate the costs & benefits • Interest groups • Local communities 49 Five Key Lessons
  • 50. Presentation TitleAdelaide’s North-South Corridor : Integrating Transport & Land Use Planning 3. Funding is Critical • Consider at the outset how you will fund such projects • Understand the Benefit Cost Ratio • Understand the Commonwealth’s role in funding (and the future of Infrastructure Australia) • Consider alternative funding sources (PPPs, Toll Roads, Shadow Tolls, etc.) • Consider land value capture opportunities • What is the cost if you don’t invest in the infrastructure? 50 Five Key Lessons
  • 51. Presentation TitleAdelaide’s North-South Corridor : Integrating Transport & Land Use Planning 4. Take a more integrated and ‘holistic’ approach • Considering transport, engineering & land use issues at the outset – and balancing such projects against community impacts • Working within different governance & legislative frameworks • Balance road transport improvements with public transport improvements • Being acutely aware of the social & political acceptability of such projects • Seeking to achieve long term positive legacies 51 Five Key Lessons
  • 52. Presentation TitleAdelaide’s North-South Corridor : Integrating Transport & Land Use Planning 5. Consider the community • Major urban road projects affect people • Have a better understanding of existing (and future) communities • Considering both the ‘bigger picture’ & the impacts of our decisions on ‘the individual’ • Seek to minimise community impact & disruption – both during & post construction • Seeking to achieve long term positive legacies 52 Five Key Lessons
  • 53. Presentation TitleAdelaide’s North-South Corridor : Integrating Transport & Land Use Planning 1. Have a vision – Have a plan 2. Understand the politics 3. Funding is critical 4. Take a more integrated and ‘holistic’ approach 5. Consider the community 53 Summary – Five Key Lessons
