City Street Makeovers
Perth’s city and inner urban landscape must continue to drive changes to make it more effective in business, tourism, hospitality and residential living, to attract more investment, and help to maintain our high standing in the global liveability rankings. Major developments have become the norm as the city evolves. To ensure these projects are a success, the City of Perth is undertaking essential infrastructure support initiatives. Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi said the City of Perth is hard at work making sure the City’s amenity will be able to accommodate the demands of Perth’s big three projects—Elizabeth Quay, Riverside and Perth City Link. “Our population is growing and Perth is undergoing massive change both physically and culturally,” Ms Scaffidi said. “Elizabeth Quay is expected to attract millions of visitors per year. These visitors will be travelling into and through the city on foot, bicycles, public transport and in private vehicles so it’s imperative our City’s transport infrastructure is able to cope with the increased demands.” The City of Perth recently conducted an online survey which allowed the public to pin point locations on a city map and share their thoughts and ideas on traffic and transport in Perth. This feedback is being used to formulate an Integrated Transport Strategy that will help guide the City’s transport priorities into the future. The Strategy and a summary of feedback will be formally presented to Council for endorsement later this year.
