Planning for the South West Corridor by Eric Lumsden

  1. 1. Transport Panel/ South West Group 24 April 2008 Planning for the South West Corridor Perth-Peel Vision By 2030, Perth people will have created a world-class sustainable city, vibrant, more Eric Lumsden PSM compact and accessible, with a unique sense of place. Director General
  2. 2. WA − A State of Growth Population • 2 million; 95% in SW corner of State; 3/4 in Perth metro • Unprecedented economic and population growth • Recent influx of around 30,000 people Challenges • Housing affordability and land availability • Shortage of people in key service areas • Increasing construction costs in heated market • Greater demands on transport system • Greater demands on government services
  3. 3. Southern Metropolitan and Peel Region Growth Management Strategy and Policy Framework • Significant pressure on land, infrastructure and water resources. • Guidance on rezoning, land release and development. • Comprehensive planning to manage growth and ensure sustainable land use. • WAPC - governance and implementation.
  4. 4. Southern Metropolitan and Peel Region Growth Management Strategy and Policy Framework Based on eight Network City guiding principles: 1. Managing growth by sharing responsibility between industry, communities and government 2. Planning with communities 3. Nurturing the environment 4. Making fuller use of urban land 5. Encouraging public over private transport 6. Strengthening sense of local place 7. Developing strategies which deliver local jobs 8. Providing affordable housing.
  5. 5. Network City • Strategy to guide Perth and Peel to a sustainable future. • Earlier plans were about coping with rapid expansion of Perth. • Network City is about planning better and smarter to meet the challenges of climate change, water, oil and resource depletion, at the same time catering for the demands of rapid population growth driven by a strong economy and increased affluence. • Integrates transport and land use in network of centres connected by corridors that allows efficient movement of freight and people and supports economic development.
  6. 6. Integrated Transport Planning • Example of continued local government partnerships. • WAPC to review success of ITPs. (eg. Rockingham) • WAPC to prepare ITP manual and relevant training for local governments. (not yet funded) • Reintroduction of grants program to assist and support preparation of ITPs. (not yet funded)
  7. 7. Rockingham Integrated Transport Plan Vision A balanced transport system that promotes the use of alternative transport modes, minimising pollution and protecting Rockingham’s unique environment. • Provides direction for developing all modes of personal transport in the City of Rockingham for next ten years. • Helps manage sustainable urban growth and community’s high quality of life. • Community-based approach to planning.
  8. 8. Rockingham Integrated Transport Plan • Prioritised 27 strategies into four groups: 1. process and policy 2. infrastructure and planning 3. travel demand management 4. empowerment and lobbying • Reviewed and updated bi-annually. • Won Local Government Innovation category in 2007 Sustainable Transport Awards.
  9. 9. Canning Bridge Rail Station Precinct • Planning analysis for activity centre using transit- oriented development (TOD) principles. • Land use mix, pedestrian access to station, parking and vehicular circulation, housing diversity, built form, precinct character and visual landscape. • Stakeholder and community consultation. • Jointly funded by WAPC, City of Melville and City of South Perth - $150,000. • Finalised by end 2008.
  10. 10. Keralup • Potential major residential development. • Environmental and transport issues to be addressed. • No firm proposals for 2-3 years. • Department of Housing and Works - urbanisation studies. • Traffic impacts (eg. north-south movements may cause congestion). • Traffic management options include south westerly extension of Tonkin Highway from Mundijong.
  11. 11. Cockburn Coast • Unique opportunity to revitalise forgotten industrial coastal strip. • 1993 Coogee Master Plan. • 2004 vision to transform Cockburn coast from an industrial area to world-class residential and recreational precinct. • Focus on Robb Jetty, Sth Fremantle power station and Cockburn Rd east industrial land areas.
  12. 12. Cockburn Coast • Innovative district structure plan - fresh approach to development and community building using principles of sustainability. • Eight precincts: 1. South Fremantle power station 2. Robb Jetty 3. Cockburn Road east 4. Beeliar Regional Park 5. South Fremantle tip site 6. Rockingham Road 7. Emplacement Crescent 8. Foreshore.
  13. 13. Cockburn Coast • Ongoing consultation with landowners, the community, State Government, Landcorp and the cities of Cockburn and Fremantle. • Important challenge to allow existing and committed industrial land uses to continue to operate unchanged and within existing environmental regime. (eg. containment of waste and odours). • Promotional billboard about to be unveiled with launch of district structure plan.
  14. 14. Cockburn Central • One of fastest growing populations in WA. • Important new regional centre for SW suburbs - ultimate surrounding population of 200,000. • Setting new sustainability standards for urban centres. (eg. pedestrian friendly, less reliance on cars, easy access to services and retail outlets). • Pivotal transit-oriented development on new Southern railway (16 minutes to Perth CBD) • Land to be sold as super lots for mixed use and 'main street' developments. • Town centre - 12ha excluding station car parks and bus way.
  15. 15. Cockburn Central • Owned by WAPC and LandCorp • Town centre – two stage development: Stage 1 11 lots constructed to complement Railway (new Cockburn Central Station works program), main street and town square. - Developer Australand constructing first 52 residential apartments and three-four storey mixed use buildings - City of Cockburn has town square site for mix of community services accommodation and medium to high density housing of 12 to 15 storeys
  16. 16. Cockburn Central Stage 2 4 lots in north west corner - depend on extension of Nth Lake Rd across Freeway - Incorporate mixed use.(eg. residential, office, retail, commercial, cafes, restaurants and government services). - Will meet modern business requirements. (eg. Home offices and smaller businesses (communications, IT). - Employment opportunities. - >50% of area for open space - enhanced wetlands and recreation west of town site - LandCorp working with steering committee of reps from WAPC, DPI, PTA and City of Cockburn.
  17. 17. Southern Suburbs Rail • Popular with commuters. • Average 135 train journeys south from Perth • 40-45,000 weekday passenger journeys • Boardings at several stations well above predictions • Capacity issues at peak periods • Parking demand • Noise - South Perth residents • Social issues (eg. graffiti, vandalism) • Bike lockers being installed
  18. 18. Transit-oriented Development (TOD) • Healthier, more connected communities and new level of sustainability. • Pedestrian friendly neighbourhoods - range of housing options within walking distance of public transport. • Mix of residential, retail, business and leisure options to attract people of all ages. • Efficient public transport - non-drivers not excluded from community activity. • Each TOD town is unique, reflecting the special features of the location and local community.
  19. 19. Light rail • Feasibility study into light rail service between East Perth and Subiaco. • Service is feasible - transport and planning benefits. • Would mean changes to streetscape and inner city roads. • Report with City of Perth and City of Subiaco for comment. • DPI investigating alternative option of bus rapid transit system. • Focus will remain on rapid bus corridors and bus priority in forseeable future.
  20. 20. SW Metro Sector (Fremantle to Rockingham) Road Network Study Draft discussion paper with Minister for review. Key congestion issues: • Vehicular traffic access to Fremantle via Hampton Rd (development activity in Kwinana). • Access to planned Murdoch Activity Centre via South St. • Kwinana Fwy at Canning and Mount Henry Bridges and between Roe Hwy and Armadale Rd. • Planned at-grade intersections may require grade separation in long-term (eg. Leach Hwy / North Lake Rd).
  21. 21. SW Metro Sector (Fremantle to Rockingham) Road Network Study Key road network issues Kwinana Freeway (Mt Henry Bridge & South only) • Mount Henry Bridge reaching 6-lane capacity by 2031. • Without Roe Highway west of Kwinana Freeway, the Freeway may exceed its capacity between Roe Highway and Berrigan Drive. Stock Road / Fremantle Rockingham Highway • Stock Road planned as major and continuous link from Canning Highway to Mandurah Road. Continuity should be maintained. Hampton Road / Cockburn Road • Critical section is Hampton Road between Rockingham Road and Douro Road - carries North South movement of Cockburn and Rockingham Roads. Stirling Bridge • Consider widening to 6 lanes by 2031.
  22. 22. SW Metro Sector (Fremantle to Rockingham) Road Network Study Canning Bridge • Consider widening beyond 6 lanes by 2031. Leach Highway and High Street • This route generally requires a 6 lane divided carriageway, potentially with some grade separated intersections. • A study for future upgrading of High Street is currently underway based on a four-lane divided cross-section for High Street. South Street • Existing road standard appears satisfactory into the future. • Issues with Murdoch Activity Centre - vehicular access via South Street likely to cause severe congestion. Rowley Road and Anketell Road • These roads are planned for either or both to be primary accesses to Kwinana Quay. They will serve as road and rail access corridors for freight traffic to Kwinana Quay.
  23. 23. SW Metro Sector (Fremantle to Rockingham) Road Network Study • Do we continue to pursue the traffic standards that Perth residents have become accustomed to, or do we accept that, as the city grows, traffic congestion and peak spreading become facts of life? • Do we believe that we will continue to have abundant, affordable, and acceptably clean transport energy?
  24. 24. AUSLink 2 • State Government actively encouraging freight movement by rail rather than road. • Reduce road traffic congestion and environmental impacts of freight haulage. • Growth in bulk commodities has increased demand for new on-rail terminals and network capacity. • Challenge for land planning system: - securing freight terminal developments with freight generating land uses and extending transport network. - define and protect viable transport corridor that provides access from a commodity’s point of origin to port.
  25. 25. AUSLink 2 AUSLink Land National Transport Network • Major roads and freight railways connecting capital cities and major regional centres across Australia. • Four of 24 corridors in WA: 1. Perth-Adelaide 2. Perth-Darwin 3. Perth-Bunbury 4. Perth Urban. • Perth Urban corridor in SW corridor: Leach Hwy/High St/Stirling Hwy and freight railway routes to Fremantle Inner Harbour, and Roe Hwy/Kwinana Fwy and freight rail routes to Outer Harbour. • Road and rail links to Outer Harbour not part of corridor.
  26. 26. AUSLink 2 Source: AUSLink Perth Urban Corridor Strategy
  27. 27. AUSLink 2 • Leach Hwy route from Albany Hwy to Kwinana Fwy defined before ban on large trucks - inclusion may need review. • Corridor strategy studies undertaken for network improvement and investment in State's strategic routes. • Endorsement delayed but current Government likely continue to support AusLink and draft strategies. • Identified priorities for transport improvements along WA's four corridors. • Detailed proposals to address priorities underway.
  28. 28. AUSLink 2 Priorities for Perth Urban corridor (in no particular order): 1. Improve road access to Fremantle Inner Harbour - emphasis on intersections. 2. Improve rail freight competitiveness and mode share. (eg. Improved rail freight infrastructure and logistics chain management. 3. Improve truck operation productivity (eg. reduced empty running, empty shipping container facilities at Kewdale/Forrestfield and improved vehicle booking and container management systems). 4. Manage demand for passenger travel through expansion of programs such as TravelSmart. 5. Expedite construction of new general cargo port at Fremantle Outer Harbour. 6. Continue to implement State Government's 6 Point Plan for freight management.
  29. 29. AUSLink 2 State strategic corridors Identified limited network of ‘State Strategic Transport Routes’with similar impact as AusLink routes on national and regional growth, development and connectivity objectives. 1. Perth-Albany (Albany Hwy) 2. Bunbury-Manjimup-Mt Barker-Albany (South Western & Muir Hwys) 3. North West Coastal Route (Brand & North West Coastal Hwys) 4. Midwest Goldfields corridor (Geraldton-Mt Magnet-Kalgoorlie- Esperance-Ravensthorpe)
  30. 30. Metro Freight Network Strategy • Efficient freight movement essential to economy. • > 60 million tonnes of freight move through metro area each year. • Safety, environmental concerns. • Review identified six key areas for detailed study: 1. Master Plan for the freight network 2. Sustainability in relation to freight 3. Strategies to increase the use of rail 4. Role of regional ports in reducing metropolitan road freight activity. 5. Capacity and limits of Fremantle Inner Harbour 6. New funding opportunities, including hypothecation of funds
  31. 31. Metro Freight Network Strategy • Subsequent strategy provides framework to achieve sustainable freight solution via a 6 Point Plan: 1. Extend Roe Highway to Kwinana Freeway 2. Put more freight on rail 3. Build inland container terminals 4. Make better use of roads 5. Plan now for the Outer Harbour at Fremantle 6. Improve existing roads • Implemention by DPI, Main Roads, Fremantle Ports and PTA.
  32. 32. Industrial development in SW Corridor Industrial Land Strategy • Combat diminishing supply of industrial land. • Ensure supply of industrial land for future needs of next 30 years. • Preliminary investigations for strategy are underway and demand modeling is being developed.
  33. 33. Industrial development in SW Corridor Planning sectors Internal review of current industrial land development activity and availability identified six planning sectors and availability, supply and demand trends for each: 1. North-West Planning Sector 2. Eastern Planning Sector 3. Inner Middle Planning Sector 4. South East Planning Sector 5. South West Planning Sector 6. Peel Planning Sector.
  34. 34. Industrial development in SW Corridor Key industrial areas – SW Corridor • City of Cockburn: 14,800ha • Town of Kwinana: 11,800ha • City of Rockingham: 26,100ha • Gross total 52,700ha • 3400ha dedicated industrial zoned land (6.0%) - 33% of the metropolitan total.
