Greater Hobart Mobility Vision

Expert Panel

As we develop our long-term mobility vision for Greater Launceston, we will work closely with a group of independent experts that specialise in a range of areas.

Our panel will help us analyse the ideas, strategies and opportunities you put forward to ultimately develop our final Vision.

We look forward to working with them to put forward solutions that address infrastructure, future mobility and emerging technologies, urban planning, active and public transport as well as social and economic issues.

The members of our panel are as follows:
