The National Roads and Motorists’ Association (NRMA) in Australia has proposed a $7.5bn, 20-year plan for roads, public transport and cycleways in the country’s Hunter region.

NRMA’s plan suggests transport interchanges, park-and-ride sites, priority lanes for radial roads and shuttle services throughout the south western region, according to

Completion of the $1.65bn Hunter Expressway, the Newcastle city bypass and missing highway links were also proposed by NRMA along with allocating funds to improve highways.

It has suggested investing $50bn over ten years on road and rail projects in Sydney that will be funded through higher vehicle registration fees.

The proposal is expected to encourage New South Wales’s Government work on the integrated regional transport plan.
