Get a Move On! report

Get a Move On! was a yearlong research project that aimed to: outline community and business preferences and choices for Perth’s future mobility; identify preferred solutions for the Perth region; benchmark key solutions against current international best practice; and articulate a collaborative action plan and pathways for government, private and non-government organisations to deliver solutions that achieve a mobile future for the region.

Recommendations
  • Ensure a public and active transport future for Perth.
  • Perth is a mobile, liveable, vibrant and prosperous region for all.
  • Recognise the Capital City, Perth CBD, as the primary location for employment growth and high density residential development and plan for the proportion of people living and working in the CBD to increase to support productivity, vibrancy and public and active transport infrastructure.
  • Designate six locations as Knowledge/Professional/Health Hubs. These hubs will act as major nodes in the public and active transport network and as focal points for diverse live, work and play opportunities.
  • Reconnect Perth’s Urban Villages with active and public transport infrastructure.
  • Generate public and active transport use by increasing population in appropriate locations.
  • Plan for Sub-regional Service Centres to meet the lifestyle, employment and service requirements of their local populations.
  • Industrial Centres require high-quality road access to ensure the efficient movement of workers and freight.
  • Optimise Perth’s transport system.
  • Commit to the best use of existing and alternate funding mechanisms to deliver transport and infrastructure projects.
