"KEYNOTE PRESENTATION Easing Sydney’s Congestion – developing a road network for tomorrows Sydney"

  1. 1. Roads & Maritime Services Presentation to Australian Institute of Traffic Planning and Management July 2016
  2. 2. Roads & Maritime Services 2020 Strategy 2
  3. 3. Our assets 3 More than 18,000km of State Roads, including 4317 of National Road Network and 160km of Tolled Motorways 107 wharves including 49 commuter wharves 26 Road Tunnels 3945 traffic signal sites and around 12,000 other traffic facilities, systems and corridor assets Around 3000km of regional and local roads in the unincorporated area of NSW Network 5287 bridges 32,424km2 of navigable waterways and 2137km of coastline More than 26,000 moorings, including 193 courtesy moorings and more than 3400 maritime aids to navigation
  4. 4. Introduction Today’s Sydney • Reinvigorated NSW economy • Above national average population growth • Increased traffic volumes = increased congestion Global Sydney • Trending towards a ‘small’ megacity • Australia’s first global city • Critical role of transport for Global Sydney 4 Current state to Global Sydney
  5. 5. Today’s Sydney • London has 5100 people per square kilometre • Sydney has 2100 people per square kilometre – 21km² of more than 8000 people – 93km² of between 5000 and 8000 people – 114 km² of more than 5000 people • Rate of intensification rapidly increasing 5 Population density drives transport outcomes
  6. 6. Today’s Sydney Constraints • Limited opportunities to expand road network • Road space consumed by single occupant vehicles • Employment opportunities not always convenient to public transport • Dispersed population is challenging for mass transit 6 Our transport challenge
  7. 7. Today’s Sydney • 17.6 million trips on an average weekday – 75% on roads • Costs economy $5 billion per year • Six most constrained strategic corridors are: − Liverpool to Sydney Airport − Mona Vale to Sydney via Dee Why − Parramatta to Sydney via Top Ryde − Parramatta to Sydney via Strathfield − Rouse Hill to Macquarie Park − Sydney Airport to Sydney City 7 Congestion
  8. 8. Tomorrow’s Sydney State Infrastructure Strategy identifies key challenges including: • Tackling congestion • Catering for a growing demand • Extracting the optimum performance • Building future capacity and protecting road corridors • Enhancing access to Sydney • Planning for population growth - integrating transport and land use planning 8 Facing the challenges
  9. 9. Tomorrow’s Sydney • Trains • Light rail • Corridor protection • Buses • Ferries • Road transport 9 Cluster approach
  10. 10. Tomorrow’s Sydney Motorways • WestConnex • NorthConnex • Western Harbour Tunnel • M12 Major road upgrades • The Northern Road • Richmond Road • Northern Beaches • Narellan Road • Sydney Airport 10 Motorways and major road improvements
  11. 11. Tomorrow’s Sydney Sub programs • Pinch Points • Clearways • Southern Gateway • M4 Smart Motorway • Urban Traffic Control Systems • Bus Priority Infrastructure Program 11 Tackling congestion
  12. 12. Easing Sydney’s Congestion 12 Pinch Point Programs
  13. 13. Easing Sydney’s Congestion Criteria for clearway investigation is: • Directional traffic flows exceed 800 vehicles per hour per lane • Travel speeds are 30km/h or below during peak periods • The road is a strategic bus or freight transport corridor for moving people and goods • Alternative public parking close to local businesses can be found 13 Clearways
  14. 14. Easing Sydney’s Congestion The M4 Smart Motorways Project is expected to provide major benefits to western Sydney motorists including: • Boosting peak time capacity by up to 30 percent - the equivalent of adding an extra lane • Improving peak travel times by up to 15 minutes • Improving travel reliability by up to 50 percent • Reducing crashes by up to 30 percent. 14 Smart Motorways
  15. 15. Easing Sydney’s Congestion Transport Management Centre • Monitors and manages road network • 24 hours a day • 365 days a year • Cars and trucks, trains, buses, ferries and light rail SCATS upgrade will allow monitoring of: • Real-time vehicle travel speeds • Where vehicles are travelling to and from • Efficient and reliable routes • Warn when trucks are oversized for tunnels 15 Urban Traffic Control Systems
  16. 16. Easing Sydney’s Congestion Improving bus services includes: • Dedicated bus lanes and traffic light improvements • Bus stop relocation • Rationalisation of stop spaces • Rapid Bus Transit routes 16 Bus Priority Infrastructure Program
  17. 17. Easing Sydney’s Congestion Non-build solutions • CCTV camera monitoring and enforcement • Big data and strategic road transport planning • Smart phones and social networks • The internet of things 17 Complimentary strategies
  18. 18. Tomorrow’s Sydney But the future will bring new challenges including: • Changing expectations from our customers who are often time-poor • Sydney moving from being an extensively developed city to one with a central ‘global’ pocket of high population densities • Rapidly changing technology • Government funding constraints • Rising costs. 18 New challenges in the future
