Regional Development Australia (RDA) Illawarra made a submission on the draft Future Transport 2056 Strategy and the Regional NSW Services and Infrastructure Plan.

It was our view that Wollongong should be deemed a 'Global Gateway' in the Future Transport 2056 strategy. A Global Gateway is defined as a City that provides state level services and facilities to support a broad population catchment while also having international connections through their airport and/or port. It is clearly evident that Wollongong is a Global Gateway as it provides vital access to the Port of Port Kembla and is proximate to a large residential growth area in Macarthur.
