Just a heads-up for anyone interested ... cost of $50 for non-members I believe.
Advanced notice of cycle planning workshop to be held jointly with AITPM & IPWEA.
Thursday 5th September – 2.00 to 5.00 pm
Please register at: Eventbrite registration page
Hosted by: The Royal Automobile Club of Western Australia
832 Wellington Street, West Perth WA 6005
Objective of the workshop
The objective of the workshop is to bring together transport planners and project managers at the state and local government level to consider a plan to increase the mode share of cycling across
Perth from its current level of less than 2% to 6% by 2031. Specifically the workshop would consider:
* Interim target of doubling cycling by 2021
* How can we plan, implement and achieve the target of a 6% modal share
* The need for sub-regional plans (larger LGs or groupings of smaller LGs) to develop the bicycle network at a finer grain than the PBN
* A 5 year and 10 year implementation plan to commence development of a connected safe network, consideration of policy initiatives, design guidelines and travel plans
Proudly "a bleeding heart with too much spare time on his hands"
AITPM are current running their national conference in Perth:
The agenda includes:
The Western Australian Bicycle Network Plan – a focus on connections to schools and rail stations Ashley McCormick, Department of Transport
Implementing a Bicycle Route Choice Model into a Metropolitan Transport Network Julian Laufer, PTV
Strategic Transport Models: Mistakes we make Anthony Fransos, SMEC
Modelling Park and Ride in Congested Areas Tim Veitch, Veitch Lister
Hopefully the WA traffic planners would have got some ideas from the Annual conference, and will be ready for action for the cycling planning workshop in September.
But, then again, there is politics, as this came out of the Annual conference:
Stand-off stalls freeway traffic trial
Not cycle related, but does question why we are spending $m's on widening freeways when alternatives may currently exist and being used worldwide. In WA we then debate the merits and who is going to pay for it. WA - wait awhile
