City Street Makeovers

Western Suburbs Weekly - - City of perth news -

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.
