What is the Perth Greater CBD Transport Plan?
Why is the Plan being developed?
Central Perth is undergoing the biggest transformation in its development history.
New destinations in and around the Greater CBD such as Yagan Square, Perth Children’s Hospital, Optus Stadium, and Elizabeth Quay have brought more vibrancy and activity to the city.
With other major projects planned or underway it is vital we ensure our transport network can continue to support and improve the inner-city experience for everyone.
The Perth Greater CBD Transport Plan will identify the infrastructure, programs and services required to keep the Perth CBD moving as it grows, and how to get the best use from both new and existing infrastructure.
Transport planning for Perth’s Greater CBD also needs to help create great places for people. This means ensuring the transport system supports all users of the city centre including residents, workers and visitors such as tourists and locals looking to enjoy the cultural, retail, recreational and other attractions that our city offers.
What will the Plan focus on?
The Perth Greater CBD Transport Plan will identify the transport infrastructure, programs and services required to keep the Perth CBD moving as it grows, and how to get the best use from the existing transport system.
The Plan will look at all modes of transport including the walking, cycling, public transport, road and freight networks but will prioritise the movement of people to, from and within the city centre through sustainable transport options.
A key focus for transport planning for the Perth Greater CBD is to find the right balance of transport solutions for all users.
What are the key challenges?
When is the Plan expected to be completed?
The Perth Greater CBD Transport Plan is expected to be ready for Government consideration in mid 2020.
Who is developing the Plan?
What are sustainable transport options?
Sustainable transport options are those that allow or encourage people to travel to, from and within the Greater CBD by modes other than private vehicles. More people using sustainable transport options benefits the CBD by reducing the impact of congestion, improving air quality and helping to create vibrant, safe places to enjoy.
How will the Plan improve the city?
What are the proposed outcomes?
- allows the community and stakeholders to have their say;
- aligns with current and future land use strategies;
- focuses on the movement of people and goods rather than the transport mode;
- considers the flow-on impact to the wider Perth metropolitan area; and
- ensures that Perth Parking funding is invested wisely.
