Cycling Infrastructure for Perth
The Government of Western Australia has committed an unprecedent investment of $134.5m over the forward estimates period across the state. This boost in funding will allow for sizable strategic connections to be completed in the coming years to accelerate the growth of a safe and connected cycling network.
This presentation will provide details on the approach to planning the network across the state, innovations in approach, key projects that will be enabled via the funding, activation approaches for projects and evaluation of projects post implementation.

METRONET and What it Means for WA’s Future Transport Needs
Populations of Australia’s big cities are growing at substantial rates while road congestion limits the reliance on car traffic for peak hour commuting. The heavy lifting of commuter traffic is provided by the city rail networks which rapidly reach their present capacity limits.
Maybe just in time to avoid future traffic gridlock, Australian governments have committed to an unprecedented investment in rail infrastructure and rolling stock. The keynote outlines and compares the approaches between Australia’s four biggest cities before looking in more detail at the METRONET transport programme in Greater Perth.
While METRONET may seem just a common branding for rail network extensions in Perth, the objective and potential impact of METRONET is much wider and more visionary. With the desirable bipartisan political support, METRONET could shape the future of transport in and around Western Australia’s capital for decades to come.

Social Licence to Operate in the Mining Sector
Social licence to Operate (SLO) refers to the ongoing acceptance and approval of a project, company or industry by its stakeholders. SLO is a significant issue for the mining industry, as a lack of community acceptance can cause delays to secure funding and government approvals and extra costs to projects.
