Transport Pillar

The G21 Transport Pillar supports efforts to:

  • grow the region’s reputation, capability and capacity as the leading transport hub for south east Australia
  • improve community and visitor access to services, educational and vocational opportunities and lifestyle activities
  • improve the amenity and safety of transport infrastructure, and reduce the environmental impact of transport activity.

Priority Projects

The G21 Board has endorsed two Transport Pillar projects as ‘G21 Priority Projects’:
  • To complete or develop key links from the Geelong Ring Road to maximise the value from the major investment in the Geelong Ring Road and Princes Highway West.
  • Public transport services in the G21 region need to be upgraded to improve frequency and connectivity in the region and provide better links to Melbourne.

Latest Pillar Activity

An update from the June 2018 Transport Pillar meeting.
Construction time frames for the $1.75 billion Regional Rail Revival, which will upgrade every regional rail line across Victoria, have been announced.
Drivers getting off the West Gate Freeway at Williamstown Road will use a new off-ramp from today (4 June 2018) as work powers ahead on the Victorian Government’s West Gate Tunnel.

Working Groups

The Transport Pillar has Working Groups of experts who meet to discuss and plan specific Pillar Projects.

  • Bicycle Infrastructure Group
  • G21 Public Transport Reference Group
  • G21 Roads Working Group
  • Warrnambool - Geelong Rail Line Service Working Group
