Transport

One of the essential elements contained within the vision of an integrated urban environment for the Doncaster Hill Activities Area is a community village that is people-focused and provides a range of community services, including adequate access and opportunity for transport. 

The Doncaster Hill Strategy aims to create a comprehensive network of pedestrian and cycling paths, as well as providing easy access to major public transport routes,  connecting the area the to the city and neighbouring suburbs.

The Community Service Infrastructure Doncaster Hill - DCP Justifications Summary Report outlines the community services and facilities that will be required in the Doncaster Hill area, including transport.

Doncaster Hill Mode Shift Plan

A Mode Shift Plan for Doncaster Hill has recently been developed to encourage greater use of public transport and walking and cycling, to reduce future traffic congestion in the Hill and promote healthy outcomes for residents. The Plan recommends a number of actions, which are categorised into four main goals:

  • Walking/cycling
  • Public transport
  • Roads and parking
  • Behaviour change

As part of the Mode Shift Plan, a behaviour change plan has also been developed following community consultation in late 2015. The plan will commence with a pilot project in Precinct 5 (Sovereign Point Court) and the approved action plan will be implemented over the coming years.
