Sunshine Coast Regional Transport Plan
« on: October 28, 2018, 08:32:30 PM »
I have been trying to find the Sunshine Coast Regional Transport Plan, it was underway according to the State Government in December 2016 and was due for completion within 6 months, making it finished by June 2017.
There is only one on their website and it is the Mackay Isaac Whitsunday Regional Transport Plan.

I have written to Transport and Main Roads last Wednesday, seeking a copy of the Sunshine Coast Regional Transport Plan.

Hi FF,

I suspect we are experiencing a churn of the strategic documentation.  When the deadlines looms for major spending on strategies and infrastructure, there is a minor panic in government and a new strategic document is released, with new deadlines for the works.

The current strategic document de jour is ‘Shaping SEQ 2017’, which says:

“Regional Transport Plans Regional Transport Plans (RTPs) are being prepared and delivered by the Department of Transport and Main Roads for each of its 12 districts. RTPs are being prepared for the Metropolitan District, North Coast District, South Coast District and Darling Downs District, which cover the SEQ region. ShapingSEQ aims to integrate land use planning  and the transport systems that move people and goods. Goal 3: Connect and its supporting elements and strategies recognise the importance  of supporting the regional land use pattern with  an integrated regional transport system.

“This will support a system that prioritises passenger and active transport and the economic function of the transport network. The RTPs are being developed to guide transport planning and support these aspects of ShapingSEQ (Figure 18). RTPs will tackle the transport challenges and set the region on a path to a sustainable transport system. To support this journey, the RTPs will build upon the regional vision and goals established in ShapingSEQ, guiding how we respond to future land use patterns, transport needs and technologies.”

From the Shaping SEQ 2017, which replaces Connecting SEQ 2031

- Provide frequent public transport services to planned major expansion growth areas:  Caboolture West
- High frequency public transport services from Maroochydore to Caloundra to Beerwah
(Supports increased dwelling densities and employment growth,  e.g. around any new public transport stations, and more accessible and efficient public transport. Supports increased take-up of planned expansion areas, including higher densities close to any planned stations.)
- Beerburrum to Nambour Rail Upgrade Project
(Relieve pressure on the strategic road network and will improve freight efficiency.)

No timelines given.

The Sunshine Coast Council has an integrated transport strategy draft:
https://haveyoursay.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/draft-integrated-transport-strategy
The video is good.  Seems the local government strategies have to confirm with the statewide and regional strategies.
'
I have tried searching on 'North Coast Region Transport Strategy' to no avail.

Yet another transport plan, a coordination plan this time: https://www.tmr.qld.gov.au/About-us/Corporate-information/Publications/Transport-Coordination-Plan

Slightly off topic, forgive me ...

But this must so reassuring to the Arts et al.   ::) :P

Obviously a ' policy deficiency ' in Arts.  Simple fix really, not sure if it will survive a year or two, but hey?

The opposition is sooooo hopeless, barely in govt for the last 20 years. Need competition to drive quality, unfortunately none around it seems.

Maybe hand PT to SEQ Council of Mayors, might do a better job.
Negative people... have a problem for every solution.

Don’t forget FF that the Department of Transport and Main Roads has won a 2015 Premiers Award for Excellence for ‘designing a future with its customers’.
The commendation reads like a work of fiction:

“The Department of Transport and Main Roads Customer Services Branch puts the customer at the centre of everything it does, ensuring the delivery of registration and licensing products and services in the best way possible.

“By building a continuous improvement culture and focusing on digital first and customer experience in the workforce, this program has achieved significant improvements in the way it delivers services. By looking at things from a customer perspective, the branch has been able to provide clearer, simpler and faster services to the community.”

Just so much mumbo jumbo really.

Let’s not forget one of the highlights of the 2014 awards, where TMR/QR were honoured with a gong.

This is a real laugh:

“Queensland Rail has improved and maintained the on-time running performance of South East Queensland (SEQ) trains over the past 24 months.
“A dedicated taskforce has ensured train control, train crew and station staff work together to provide the best possible services for customers.
“Today more than 96 per cent of trains are on time. As a result, the timetable was reworked to deliver an extra 200 services each weekday in SEQ.”

Oh, how have times changed!

And this one is an absolute hoot … awarded in 2018:

Check out the language on the 'actions'.  Virtually every line item uses words like:

Undertake detailed planning
Assess the viability of …..
Examine more efficient blah blah blah
Explore options for ….

Nothing that commits to anything in particular.

Re Beerburrum-Nambour, says construction will take five years from the completion of the detailed planning.  (Detailed planning has begun, but vague on when it will finish and, hence, when construction will start.)  In any event, construction of the Beerburrum-Nambour project is fur duplication to Landsborough initially.  Completing the remainder remains a bit vague.
