Sorell Strategic Transport Network Assessment
Ratio Consultants were engaged by Sorell Council to undertake a strategic transport review of Sorell that considers future growth projections, State Government transport projects (namely the Sorell Southern Bypass), and the function of the Sorell township as a key hub for the wider Tasman Peninsula East Coast area.
Amongst other things this study focuses on the proposed growth area to the south-east of the existing Sorell township.
The purpose of the strategic transport network assessment was to:
- Determine the likely future growth-driven traffic generation and distribution for the study area;
- Review the expected changes in traffic volumes and distributions resulting from the soon to be
constructed Sorell Southern Bypass; and
- Review the theoretical capacity of the future road network and confirm the suitability of the future
Council adopted the Sorell Strategic Transport Network Assessment as a road network plan for consideration in future planning applications.
