TRANSPORT CONNECTIVITY 

Every mode of transport is represented in Bayswater: Rail, Bus, Rail/Bus Interchange, Cars, Bicycles, Motorised Chairs and Pedestrians.
An integrated Transport Study is essential to take advantage Bayswater's unique situation.

Why This Is A Key Focus Area

  • Every mode of transport is represented in Bayswater: Rail, Bus, Rail/Bus Interchange, Cars, Bicycles, Motorised Chairs and Pedestrians.
  • Every transport mode is interlinked and requires a cohesive future vision
  • Parking pressures and conflicts exist between rail use, town centre use and residents
  • The need to understand the responsibility to take advantage of the Capital Cost of Infrastructure Development of a railway line and station
  • Cars currently dominate the Town Centre
  • Bus interchange is clumsy and unsafe
  • The bike path around the station is clumsy and unsafe
  • The pedestrian journey lacks safety , is uncoordinated and with little integration.
  • Access for all ages and abilities is not optimal
  • Need to encourage (safe) walkability for a healthier community
  • Once in a life-time opportunity to take advantage of the State investment in the Forrestfield Airport Link ( FAL)

Tools We Need To Support
This Key Focus Area

  • In-depth all-inclusive Integrated Transport Study
  • Consultation with and input from Perth Transport Authority, Main Roads WA, Bike West, RACWA, pedestrian groups and City of Bayswater

How to do this? By supporting a comprehensive Future Vision via an Activity Centre Plan.
Why Bayswater? It's a strategic inner urban hub that hasn't realised its full potential ... yet.
