Keeping up with progress

The expected rapid growth of Footscray’s population in the future will increase demands on public transport and roads. The Footscray City Edge Masterplan and the Maribyrnong Integrated Transport Strategy have been created by Maribyrnong City Council to identify ways in which the city can keep up with the extra people.

Some ideas that the Masterplan and Strategy suggest are for Council to lobby State Government for new tram routes from Footscray into Melbourne’s centre, complete the missing links in the bike network and create a central transport interchange for buses, trams and trains.
