    Traffic flow and parking around Nedlands North due to the QE11 development is already starting to become a concern: heavier traffic all round; poor flow along Smyth Rd (north end), Hampden Rd (south end left turn to Stirling Hwy), Monash Ave and Winthrop Ave near the hospital car park; and parking for the hospital already impacting residential areas and access to local services along Hampden Rd. This will likely worsen with the PCH opening. Please give this matter serious consideration as part of this strategic priority.

      Totally agree that the traffic impact of the PCH and the Regis redevelopment has possibly been under estimated in planning. This is a complex problem requiring a State-local govt-private sector solution. Kings Park at one end and Karrakatta cemetery at the other end of Monash Ave provide significant barriers to traffic flow requiring innovative solutions.

    At the Community Drop-in Sessions on 2 and 4 September 2017, we asked participants to tell us which priorities were most important to them and what they thought was missing: In an activity designed to capture which priorities people felt were most important, participants were given four stickers to indicate their highest priorities. The stickers could be spread across different priorities to highlight up to four, or multiple stickers placed against any priority. “Address parking” was selected as a high priority by 12% of participants. The top two elements of this priority participants highlighted as being most important are to:• Advocate for improvements in public transport and bicycle routes • Continue to monitor traffic flows and plan for improvements to ensure an efficiently operating transport network

      It's important the Council work closely with State government, neighbouring Councils, UWA and the hospitals to contain parking on site, identify and enforce parking restrictions, incentivise public transport and cycling trips, and look at trying to make greater use of the river for transport.
