The Devonport City Council has launched a public consultation period on its Road Network Strategy 2023 – 2028 (RNS) as part of its ongoing commitment to developing and maintaining safe and efficient roads. The public consultation period, which will end on 2 March 2023, is an opportunity for the community to provide feedback on the council’s road network and community transport needs.
Devonport Mayor Alison Jarman said the strategy reflects the council’s dedication to making roads safer, sustainable, and more efficient. The RNS identifies 22 deliverable actions that address important issues that were identified through network analysis and key stakeholder consultation. The strategy will assist the council with asset management, traffic management, and development decisions.
Mayor Jarman said the council wants to hear what’s important to the community and how they feel about the existing road network. The council is inviting feedback on how it can improve road safety, connectivity, and congestion.
The feedback form is available on the council’s Speak Up Devonport webpage, and a copy of the RNS can be accessed on the council’s website. The council’s customer service team is also available to answer any questions and provide alternative options to access the RNS.
The survey will close at 5 PM on 2 March 2023, and the council encourages all members of the community to participate and provide feedback on the road network strategy.
