The Victorian Government will establish a new central transport agency to coordinate Victoria’s growing transport system and plan for its future.
On 27 June 2016, Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allan and Minister for Roads Luke Donnellan announced the establishment of Transport for Victoria (TFV).
“Like Transport for London and major cities around the world, TFV will bring together the planning, coordination and operation of Victoria’s transport system and it’s agencies, including VicRoads and Public Transport Victoria (PTV).”
“Over the coming months, consultation will be carried out with key stakeholders, and legislation will be introduced to establish the new body later this year. Transport for Victoria will be up and running at the end of 2016. In the interim, VicRoads, PTV and other existing transport agencies will continue to provide information and support to transport users.”
This will affect many transport professionals in Victoria.
