Get a Move On!

Progress Tracker: Complete

2015
2016

With Perth predicted to have 7 of the 10 most congested roads in Australia and congestion identified as the primary issue of concern for Perth and Peel residents, both today and for the future, the aim of our yearlong research project – Get a Move On! was to identify a preferred pathway for Perth’s mobility future.

The research was supported in part by our members through the Committee’s annual budget, along with core funder RAC, major funders AECOM, ANZ and the City of Subiaco, and supporting funders Ipsos, UWA, Finbar and HASSELL.

An extensive research agenda resulted in 13 major findings, 10 recommendations and 33 actions to guide investment and ensure that Perth is a mobile, liveable, vibrant and prosperous region for all.

Report Recommendations
  • 1. Ensure a public and active transport future for Perth.
  • 2. Perth is a mobile, liveable, vibrant and prosperous region for all.
  • 3. 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.
  • 4. 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.
  • 5. Reconnect Perth’s Urban Villages with active and public transport infrastructure.
  • 6. Generate public and active transport use by increasing population in appropriate locations.
  • 7. Plan for Sub-regional Service Centres to meet the lifestyle, employment and service requirements of their local populations.
  • 8. Industrial Centres require high-quality road access to ensure the efficient movement of workers and freight.
  • 9. Optimise Perth’s transport system.
  • 10. Commit to the best use of existing and alternate funding mechanisms to deliver transport and infrastructure projects.
