Transport @ 3.5 Million
What is the Perth and Peel Transport Plan for 3.5 million People and Beyond?
The State Government's Transport @ 3.5 Million, sets the vision for a generational change to Perth and Peel's transport network.
It provides a long term plan for transport infrastructure and considers how we can use the transport network more efficiently as the population approaches 3.5 million and beyond.
The plan looks at where people will live and work in the future and outlines a flexible transport system so that people and freight can keep moving as the city grows.
To reflect the complexity and significance of the State's transport needs, the Department of Transport established an inter-government Steering Committee comprising senior executives from the following organisations to guide the development of the plan:
- Department of Transport.
- Western Australian Planning Commission.
- Department of Planning.
- Main Roads Western Australia.
- Public Transport Authority.
- Department of Premier and Cabinet.
To inform the mass transit component of Transport @ 3.5 Million the State Government requested specialist academics from the Planning and Transport Research Centre of WA (PATREC) to undertake a high-level research study.
Feedback received during a three-month comment period showed strong support for the draft plan released in July 2016 and as a result the investments and initiatives in the consultation draft were retained in the final version with minor modifications.
Transport @ 3.5 Million will help to maintain Perth's status as one of the most liveable cities in the world.

Transport @ 3.5 Million: Next steps
Transport @ 3.5 Million highlights the mass public transport network; high frequency on-road public transport; major off-road active transport network; freeways and the primary freight network.
There is considerable interest in the more granular elements of the network such as major roads and connectivity between local cycling routes and principal shared paths. In response to this, the Transport portfolio will develop sub-regional transport plans that demonstrate complete alignment with the upcoming finalised Perth and Peel @ 3.5million land use planning frameworks.
In addition to demonstrating alignment, the sub-regional transport plans will facilitate further discussions between State and local government agencies on the design and development of investment proposals.
