Lessons from Europe and feedback on Perth’s Transport Plan

I recently had the pleasure of cycling through some of Europes most marvellous cities including Barcelona, Berlin and Copenhagen. There were many innovations that could be useful here in Perth and Fremantle.

I have drawn from this experience to offer feedback on the cycling component of the Perth Transport Plan at 3.5m and Beyond, which is attached.

The City of Fremantle has made significant progress towards reducing truck traffic and speed on Hampton Road and Ord Street, but we need your help!

The classification of Hampton Road and Ord Street has been changed meaning traffic calming measures can now be implemented.

We have had approval for traffic calming platforms to be constructed at key pedestrian crossing points on Ord Street towards the end of the year.

We have also sought approval for the speed limit to be reduced to 50km an hour on Hampton Road and Ord Street from South Street to Queen Victoria Street, however this should be extended to include South Fremantle.

We have learned that public pressure helps achieve results.
