As the Department is aware, the Committee has played an active role in promoting a quality, multi-modal transport future for Perth and Peel and is currently in the process of finalising the Get a Move On! major project.

The Get a Move On! report, due for release on 30 November, makes a number of recommendations to ‘get the region moving’ towards an efficient, multi-modal, twenty-first century transport system supported by strategic employment destinations and a range of housing options.

Get a Move On! is the combined outcome of ten individual research projects undertaken over a 12 month period. This has included a survey of 2,000 commuters; interviews with 40 major businesses representing 100,000 commuters; the findings of on-the-ground study tours; and desktop research to examine the co-dependent relationship between land use, transport and economic development. The research, findings and recommendations of Get a Move On! provide the evidence base for this submission.

The Committee would like to commend the Department of Transport for the preparation of this document because we believe that a long-term strategy of this kind for transport in the region is essential for the delivery of a high quality, multi-modal future.

Things to consider include:
  • Underlying Assumptions – Population and Employment
  • Prioritise Public Transport Investment
  • Focus on Investment in Central Locations in Short to Medium Term
  • Prioritise Access to Knowledge Destinations
  • Optimise the Existing Public Transport System
  • Address Funding Up Front
