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 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.
