Meeting future traffic and transport needs

The City seeks to limit future traffic congestion, support active travel (walking, cycling and public transport), encourage healthier living and boost economic activity - whilst accommodating significant population growth.

In 2015 the City introduced the Integrated Transport and Land Use Strategy (ITLUS). Work is already well underway on a top priority action of the ITLUS to introduce a high frequency, longer span bus service and more train services along the main four transit corridors of urban Bendigo.

The Bendigo freight study is another key action from the ITLUS. The aim of the study is to gain an understanding of freight issues and opportunities, help make the freight network more robust and responsive to innovation and change, and help local business to be more productive.
