Get a Move On!

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 the 2016 research project – Get a Move On! – was to identify a preferred pathway for Perth’s mobility future.

The final report produced 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.
