Central Sydney Traffic and Transport Committee

    The Committee has been established to provide effective coordination of transport and traffic in the Sydney CBD.

    The Central Sydney Traffic and Transport Committee (CSTTC) has been established to provide for effective coordination of transport and traffic management in the Sydney Central Business District, ensuring the most efficient and effective delivery of road and public transport for Australia’s largest city.

    The Committee does not replace existing planning controls or authorities, but represents a high-level group with the authority to promote better planning and cooperative decision making on significant traffic and transport matters.  It considers proposals from the City of Sydney, the Barangaroo Delivery Authority, the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority and the Central Sydney Planning Committee.

    For details of the CSTTC governing legislation, see the City of Sydney Act 1988, referring to Part 4A, Divisions 1 to 3 and Schedule 2. For additional information on the operational area of the CSTTC, view the CSTTC operational area map (1.8 MB).

    The CSTTC is chaired by the Secretary, Transport for NSW, with a further three members nominated jointly by the Minister for Transport and Minister for Roads and Ports, and three members nominated by the City of Sydney Council.

    The CSTTC is required to hold 4 meetings per year which are to be open to the public.  Members of the public cannot, however, make planning or other submissions to the CSTTC. These meetings will consider a range of issues which have been notified by Sydney CBD roads authorities; Sydney CBD parking authorities; the Central Sydney Planning Committee; or matters otherwise nominated by members of the CSTTC.
