Consultation has concluded

The City of Nedlands is a well-connected community, close to the central business district, the coast and with extensive foreshore access. The City also boasts a major university and health precinct.

Thousands of people move around for work, play and general enjoyment using different types of transport every day. To better understand how this occurs, the City of Nedlands have commenced the preparation of an Integrated Transport Strategy.

An Integrated Transport Strategy is a blueprint for enabling all modes (different types) of transport. The vision for the City’s Integrated Transport Strategy is:

“Nedlands will have a safe and connected transport system that encourages sustainable movement and development, through easy access to public and active transport, a resilient network of green streets and engagement with the community and major landholders.”

Between January and March 2023, the community were asked to share their feedback about the way they currently move around and how they would prefer to move.

General summary of the feedback included:

  • While car use is currently high, there is a reasonable desire to increase the use of active transport, particularly walking and cycling.
  • There is a need to improve the quality, connections and amenity of pedestrian and cycle paths, as well as examine pedestrian crossings.
  • Public transport patronage could be increased by improving connections between modes, providing cycle parking and providing safe (well-lit), quality paths.
  • Parking and traffic concerns were raised, particularly around schools and large recreation areas, however, were not the predominant concern. Poor visibility and speeding issues identified at several intersections.

Draft Actions

Several actions have been developed for the City based on a workshop with technical stakeholders, previous community engagement, and a gap analysis. These actions will form part of the ‘Strategic directions’, which aim to achieve the objectives of the Integrated Transport Strategy.

  • Integrated Transport Strategy Vision: Overall aspiration for movement throughout the City of Nedlands.
  • Objectives: The aims to achieve the vision.
  • Strategic Directions/Actions: Tasks or projects to undertake to achieve the objectives.

The City is now seeking your feedback on draft actions proposed. Provide your feedback via the survey before 23 July 2023.
