PERTH METROPOLITAN REGION PEDESTRIAN STRATEGY: POINTS TO PONDER

Work is currently underway on the development of a Perth Metropolitan Region Pedestrian Strategy. The objective of the strategy is to facilitate the achievement of the pedestrian/walking trip targets published in the (Perth) Metropolitan Transport Strategy (1995). The target is to (effectively) double walking trips to 12.5 percent of all travel trips by the year 2029. An important component in the development of the strategy has been that of public consultation. In endeavouring to stimulate such input, individual community members, pedestrian focus officers (employed by Local Government) and/or pedestrian focus groups throughout the Perth Metropolitan Region were identified. Thereafter, public forums were arranged to identify the main issues to be addressed by the proposed strategy. A spin-off to this consultation process has been the identification of many other organisations, both public and private, significantly involved in this community-wide issue of walking. It is now anticipated that the extent of their involvement will be embraced by the Strategy through its recognition of this significantly multi-portfolio issue. As part of the Strategy development process, a Discussion Paper, focussing on the issues and the players, has been developed. (a) For the covering entry of this conference, please see ITRD E200461.
