This submission has been prepared by the Committee for Perth with input from the Committee’s Reshaping Working Group and Get a Move On! Steering Committee. We would like to thank the staff at the Department of Transport for providing a briefing to both groups which has informed the submission process.

The Committee would like to commend the Department of Transport for the preparation of the draft Travel Demand Management Implementation Program with initiatives to maximise the use of current infrastructure. Optimising existing assets is critical to getting the full benefit from investment, particularly in a constrained budget environment.

The Committee for Perth generally agrees with the principles contained throughout the TDM Implementation Program, and supports the use of TDM to improve movement throughout the Perth and Peel region. A key recommendation of the Committee’s Get a Move On! report was to ‘optimise Perth’s transport system’ and proposed actions that are generally consistent with those contained in the draft TDM Program.

Specific Comments include:
  • Travel Plans
  • Parking Strategies
  • Transport Pricing
  • Other factors influencing travel demand
