The CBD Transport Plan will address traffic congestion in and around the Perth Central Business District.
About the plan
Announced in April 2012, the $105million plan will ensure that the Perth CBD has a sustainable and integrated transport system that can accommodate and complement major city development projects such as the Perth City Link, Riverside and Elizabeth Quay projects.
The Plan includes a range of initiatives for the next five years to manage the impact of these major developments and a growing population on the central city's transport system.
Key initiatives include:
- A third lane in the Graham Farmer Freeway tunnel and increased lane capacity on the Mitchell Freeway
- Active Traffic Management, which uses CCTV cameras to provide information to road users and to Incident Response Service crews which remove broken-down vehicles
- Additional Red CAT buses
- Two way streets
- Converting pedestrian crossing phases to parallel walks
Planned for 2013
- The introduction of a new Green CAT service that will travel between Leederville and Esplanade stations via City West every 10 minutes.
- Additional priority bus lanes
- Additional and improved Principal Shared Paths as identified in the WA Bicycle Network Plan
The CBD Transport Plan has been prepared by DoT in partnership with the City of Perth, Main Roads WA and the Public Transport Authority and in consultation with the Department of Planning.
