Call for input on Invermay plan

The city of Launceston is seeking comment on a draft Master Plan for Invermay, developed in partnership with the Department of State Growth and external consultants, in response to a predicted large-scale increase in traffic in the area.

A report by the City of Launceston says major development projects in the area, such as the Silo Hotel, the relocation of University of Tasmania to Inveresk, as well as general growth in traffic in and around Launceston, will place ‘increased pressure on the state and local road network within the Invermay area’.

The Master Plan aims to address these predicted issues in the short, medium and long term, as well as existing concerns around traffic and pedestrian and cycling safety. It also aims to improve local street amenity and safety.

A number of initiatives are listed on the council’s website, including new link roads, new traffic signals, improved street-scaping, additional lanes to carry traffic in peak times and turning lanes to improve traffic flow, and improved pedestrian/cycling connections.

We are seeking member input to assist us in formulating a response to the draft plan. Have your say in our Member Hub.
