Transport @ 3.5 Million

The State Government has developed a vision for Perth's future transport network; designed to keep our city moving as we grow and help Perth to continue to be one of the most liveable cities in the world.

Transport @ 3.5 Million

  What is the Perth and Peel Transport Plan for 3.5 million People and Beyond?

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.

As a dynamic document, work is being undertaken to ensure METRONET rail and other planning priorities are reflected within future editions of Transport @ 3.5 Million to align with current Government priorities.

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 with minor modifications in the February 2017 edition.
