After collecting public feedback on transport issues in Perth’s Eastern Region last year, the Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council has now collated and released the survey findings.
The Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council utilised an online ‘Collaborative Map’ tool in October 2014 to gather over 400 comments from users on issues such as walking, cycling and public transport; as well as motor vehicle and freight issues such as congestion, road safety and parking. Great to see the response number; it is good to see people engaging in transport issues.
Of the top 30 comments, 21 were bicycle related and represent the growing cohort of people riding bicycles in the region.
The top five transport issues identified from the survey were:
- The intersection of Toodyay Road (Red Hill) and the entry of the land fill site;
- The missing piece of Principal Shared Path between Bassendean and Midland;
- Road upgrade of Toodyay Road (Gidgegannup);
4. The missing piece of Principal Shared Path through Bayswater Train Station car park; and
5. The lack of bicycle facilities on Garratt Road Bridge.
