The Strategy has been developed in consultation with a wide range of industry, motoring, research and training organisations. It is designed to prepare South Australian business and the community for a smooth transition to low emission vehicle technologies.
Current South Australian Government initiatives, such as urban planning and transport planning reforms, extending and modernising public transport networks, and encouraging commuters and travellers to consider lower emission modes of transport, are important and effective in reducing our transport-related emissions.
Nevertheless, the importance of road transport in South Australia is expected to continue to grow with our economy and population. The Strategy, complementing the initiatives mentioned above, will help reduce the emissions intensity of our transport requirements.
It will also complement the Euro 5 and Euro 6 air quality emissions standards scheduled to be implemented over the next few years and the light vehicle CO2 emission standards under development.
