Perth Greater CBD Transport Plan

Creating a safe, connected and vibrant city centre for Perth.

CBD Greater Plan

  About the Plan

The Perth Greater CBD Transport Plan will be a strategy to guide the transport future of Perth’s city centre for the next decade, enhancing liveability, supporting new business opportunities and attracting visitors and new residents.

It will outline a series of initiatives and investments that will help residents, workers and visitors move around our city centre.

The Plan is being developed by the Department of Transport, in collaboration with the City of Perth and portfolio partners the Public Transport Authority and Main Roads Western Australia. It will incorporate advice and contributions from local and State Government representatives, industry bodies, health and educational establishments, local businesses, residents, disability access and inclusion groups and the WA community about their transport vision for the city.

The Plan will include a five-year program of evidence-based initiatives and a 10-year vision for future transport investment in the Perth Greater CBD.

The Plan is being delivered in two phases. Phase One delivered a list of transport priorities and initiatives that fall within the Perth Parking Management Area (PPMA). Implementation of Phase One is occurring through the Perth City Deal with $157 million allocated to upgrade walking and riding infrastructure, improve bus stop accessibility and shelter, implement behaviour change programs, enhance Roe Street and deliver the new Causeway Pedestrian and Cyclist Bridges.

Phase Two will see the final Perth Greater CBD Transport Plan released. The final Plan, encompassing Phase One, will outline the transport vision, objectives and outcomes for the Perth Greater CBD as well as identify a list of initiatives for implementation within a 10-year horizon.

Note: When Phase One of the Plan was released, the PPMA included the neighbourhoods of West Perth, Central Perth, East Perth, Claisebrook and Northbridge. In 2022, the PPMA was expanded to include Kings Park, streets within Crawley-Nedlands and areas of the Swan River.

  Community consultation

Community consultation is informing the development of the Perth Greater CBD Transport Plan.

An online survey and mapping activity took place between August and September 2019.

This online activity attracted more than 1000 responses from the community and interested stakeholders and helped identify opportunities and current challenges experienced while travelling to, from and around the Greater Perth CBD.

To better understand transport challenges faced, an accessibility workshop was held with the City of Perth Access and Inclusion Advisory Group in September 2019, and during October 2019 the input of the business community was sought through a series of focus groups to explore the transport network and its impacts on operating a business.

During 2020 the community were again invited to participate in an online and intercept survey, with 2,287 greater CBD users and residents providing their feedback on their travel behaviours and experiences.

The feedback received continues to guide transport priorities for the Perth Greater CBD, with summary reports available below.
