Consultation underway for new CBD transport plan
News for the Department of Transport
The Department of Transport is calling on Western Australians to help shape the 10-year blueprint for our capital city’s transport network.
A survey is now open for the community to have their say on the development of the Perth Greater CBD Transport Plan.
The aim of the plan is to help create a well-connected and vibrant city centre by keeping it moving with an optimised transport network.
The feedback received as part of the survey will be used to develop the Plan which will outline a 10-year vision for transport investment in Perth’s city centre providing additional transport options, recreational opportunities and support for tourism and commercial activity.
Craig Wooldridge, the Department of Transport’s A/Executive Director Urban Mobility said 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 that infrastructure.
“A dynamic and vibrant city relies on having a transport system that embraces innovative solutions and prioritises the movement of people through sustainable options – walking, bike riding and public transport,” he said.
“With 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.
"We want as much input as possible, so I would urge all interested parties to take the survey and help guide the transport future of Perth’s CBD for the next decade.”
The community is being invited to participate in the online survey and mapping activity via digital hub My Say Transport between Thursday 22 August and Friday 27 September 2019.
The survey seeks to better understand how the city’s current transport network is used and identify opportunities to better meet travel needs by requesting input on the current challenges faced while travelling around the CBD.
Stakeholder and community groups are invited to provide written submissions for consideration via the project webpage.
