Transport will decide election

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 26 November, 2012 - 9:37 AM
The premier has set traffic congestion as the big issue for the next state election.

Premier Colin Barnett has put Perth's spiraling transport and congestion problems up as the key election issues by saying it would be the key problems tackled by a returned Liberal/National government. Paul Murray spoke to transport and sustainability expert Professor Peter Newman.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Why don't they build a circle rout railway that would travel along Roe, ried,and Tonkin highway est and along the proposed fremantle bypass. I find the biggest problem with public transport is the inability the cross the metro area and the industrial areas are almost impossible to get to on public transport.A circle route railway serving areas like Fremantle, canningvale, Welshpool, the airport, malaga, and innaloo would be very useful at reducing car dependency.

    Another thing, stead of having urban sprawl and then having to spend big money on extending freeways and other infrastructure, why not redevelop and increase density in existing suburbs and at the same time, do major upgrades to the roads and public transport.

    is where I live. I would not consider Freeway tunnels without fixing the exhaust mechanism, the failures we have here, are beyond Government repair, evidently.

  • Transport is a critical issue, can 6PR have a weekly segment with someone from Dept of Transport. The rest are just advocates.
