Central Area Transport Plan (2025)
About the Central Area Transport Plan (2025)
The Central Area Transport Plan (2025) is being prepared by the Department of Transport, along with its portfolio partners the Public Transport Authority and Main Roads Western Australia as well as the City of Perth and the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority.
The Plan will build off the CBD Transport Plan (2012-2016) and consider a 10-year horizon based around the year 2025. The Plan will be consistent with Transport @ 3.5 Million - the Perth Transport Plan for 3.5 million people and beyond and will develop a short to medium term action plan.
The Central Area Transport Plan (2025) will cover an area that includes key destinations and activity centres that surround the Perth CBD. This includes the busy activity centres of Subiaco, Leederville, Mt Lawley and South Perth, the important trip-generating destinations such as the QEII/UWA precinct, Crown Entertainment Precinct and the future Stadium, and major development areas on the Burswood Peninsula.
The Plan will consider the role of each transport mode in the central metropolitan area, and develop initiatives to aid with the improvement of active travel, public transport, roads and freight.
