Surveying the Wide Bay Burnett : changing lifestyles and the implications for regional transport planning

Demasi, Kristin, Grant-Smith, Deanna, Doring, Sarah, & Poulsen, Gary (2007) Surveying the Wide Bay Burnett : changing lifestyles and the implications for regional transport planning. In Getting Back to Basics, PIA (Qld) Conference, 25-26 September 2007, Townsville, Australia. (Unpublished)


Significant lifestyle and demographic changes in Queensland are beginning to alter the landscape of regional transport planning. In 2006, Queensland Transport undertook a study to understand the implications of these changes on the transport planning task in regional Queensland. The study focused on the current travel characteristics of three Local Government Areas in the Wide Bay Burnett Region. Hervey Bay City represented the ‘sea change’ phenomenon; Wondai Shire represented the growing ‘tree change’ lifestyle; and Monto Shire represented communities which were either experiencing limited change or a decrease in population. The results of this research will be used to inform long term integrated regional transport planning in the region.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
