Event description
An evening with Melbourne transport experts looking at how our city is still shaped by the 1969 Transportation Plan and where to from here.

About this Event

It has been 50 years since the publication of the 1969 Melbourne Transportation Plan.

This plan, particularly its proposed network of urban freeways, continues to shape Melbourne’s growth and its patterns of daily movement.

The public debates about the city’s future resulting from this plan remain alive today.

In recognition of the Plan's 50-year anniversary, RMIT’s Centre for Urban Research together with Monash University, Swinburne University and the University of Melbourne, are hosting a public presentation and panel with speakers from Melbourne's Transport community discussing the history, present and future of transport planning in Melbourne.

Speakers to be announced shortly.
