planning guides, frameworks, strategies, design guides, design standards and practitioner tools.

(2) What new or updated information is the plan expected to provide.

(3) How will this differ from existing documents within the directorate.

(4) How is the multimodal network plan expected to be integrated into the work of other ACT agencies such as the Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate, City Renewal Authority and Suburban Land Agency.

(5) How will this work and other works be integrated into the ACT planning system review and reform project, future district strategies and a future territory plan.

(6) How is the multimodal network plan considering the role of the National Capital Authority in ACT transport systems.

(7) Will the multimodal network plan forecast future needs at the current mode share or a future more sustainable mode share with a smaller portion of private motor vehicle travel, noting that the 2020 Transport Strategy does not identify mode shift targets.

Mr Steel: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) The ACT Transport Strategy 2020 sets a vision for a world class transport system that supports a compact, sustainable and vibrant city. This vision is supported by principles for development of the future transport network, including integration of land use and transport planning, proactive planning for future scenarios, connected transport modes and promotion of zero emissions transport.

The Multimodal Network Plan (MNP) will apply this vision and transport network development principles. The MNP will review existing transport networks and confirm modal priorities using Movement and Place classifications for key transport corridors and significant areas such as the City Centre and other town centres.

Initially, the MNP will simply overlay existing transport networks including the strategic cycle network plan, indicative light rail network and rapid public transport network. This will help identify modal priorities and gaps in the integration of transport modes using the Movement and Place Framework. In accordance with the Australian Transport Assessment and Planning Guidelines, in future the development or update of individual modal plans will be aligned with transport corridor and network objectives and priorities of the MNP.

The MNP will also consider multiple future scenarios to help with planning for increasing demand for public transport and the uptake of electric vehicles and other technology.

It will include an indicative staging and prioritisation program of infrastructure and non-infrastructure initiatives across all transport modes. The initiatives will be assessed and prioritised based on a multi-criteria analysis and testing using the Canberra Strategic Transport Model. The non-infrastructure initiatives may include updating of design guides and infrastructure standards and further enhancing the Active Travel Practitioner’s Tool.
