Perth & Peel @3.5 million 2050

 
  thewaratahtrain Chief Train Controller

the WA state government has released their vision for Perth & Peel in 2050

this includes for a number of new potential service corridors for both BRT & heavy rail

the planning framework has been split into four regions, I won't get into too much depth on it here,

it includes

To ensure that the public transport network can accommodate a city of 3.5 million people in the long term, the Department of Transport is reviewing the network and defining the high-level public transport routes.
An essential criterion for urban consolidation in activity centres, station precincts and corridors is the level of public transport service, and the variety of destinations available. To this end, the framework will inform planning for the long-term quality public transport network, and consider the number of mode changes and further refine the frequency standards that combine to form quality public transport service. The frequency of the quality public transport service will be defined as either medium or high quality:

High-quality public transport routes will be planned to provide frequent reliable services, with targets such as minimum frequencies of every 10–15 minutes or better during peak and off-peak periods. Where possible, individual routes will be coordinated to provide maximum frequencies along common corridors and a number of planned corridors will have service levels similar to existing high-quality services in corridors such as Beaufort Street through Mount Lawley. In these instances optimal frequencies of at least five minutes during peak periods and regular frequencies of between five and 15 minutes at other times of day and on Saturdays and Sundays will be sought.

Medium-quality public transport routes should be served approximately every 15 minutes during the weekday inter-peak period and more frequently during peak periods. Services should run every 15 minutes in the evening and at 15–30 minute intervals in the late evenings. On the weekends services should operate every
15–20 minutes on Saturdays and every
15–30 minutes on Sundays. Actual service levels would depend on demand at a particular point in time and would generally increase over time as demand increases.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT

Fostering a change in transportation behaviours to improve the existing movement network challenges within the sub-region will be influenced by a number of factors, including the provision of accessible and reliable public transport. The sub-region is generally well serviced by public transport and there are plans for the Northern Suburbs Railway to be extended from Butler through to Yanchep with stations at Alkimos and Eglinton.
Patronage for the passenger rail line has been fed by interconnecting bus services with transit priority routes and also park and ride facilities. The provision of park and ride facilities at rail stations may be considered an acceptable land use in order to encourage public transport patronage in the short term; however, consideration should be given to the redevelopment of park and ride facilities for higher-density employment or residential uses in the long term in order to maximise infrastructure investment, particularly within activity centres.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT
The provision of efficient public transport to serve expected population and employment growth within the sub-region will be a key element of the future transport system. Key public transport challenges for the sub-region include the provision of efficient public transport services connecting growth areas within the sub-region and the eastern catchment (including the hills settlement areas) to the Midland strategic metropolitan centre and Central sub-region.
Public transport infrastructure and services for the sub-region that are being investigated by the Department of Transport and Public Transport Authority include:

a long-term extension of the proposed Forrestfield Airport Rail Link to connect to the Thornlie–Cockburn passenger railway;

a potential second passenger rail line to service the North-West sub-region (traversing the south-western portion of the North-East sub-region, with a spur line to Ellenbrook); and

a transit priority service connecting the Ellenbrook secondary activity centre to the Bassendean Station (Midland Rail Line) and beyond to the Morley strategic metropolitan centre and to the proposed second passenger rail line.
The dispersed urban areas and settlements within the shires of Mundaring and Kalamunda will continue to be served primarily by the bus network. There is a new opportunity to link bus services within the eastern urban areas of the Shire of Kalamunda to the proposed train station at Forrestfield, which will also incorporate park and ride facilities.
Based on preliminary investigations by the Department of Transport for the long-term planning for Perth and Peel the key public transport initiatives are represented in Plan 7, with anticipated timing in Table 3.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT
An effective and adaptable public transport network will be a key mechanism for achieving greater sustainability. Improved public transport will be required in order to meet the transportation needs arising from population growth, and to meet the need for increased accessibility to key employment nodes. Additionally, good public transport will be necessary to free up road capacity for transport functions reliant on the regional road system, especially freight movement.

Key proposed public transport infrastructure and services for the sub-region that are being investigated by the Department of Transport and Public Transport Authority include:

an extension of heavy rail services to Ravenswood–West Pinjarra with a possible further extension to Bunbury; and

a network of transit priority routes corresponding with the distribution of key activity centres, related urban catchments and integrating with heavy rail systems and local bus services.
Based on preliminary investigations by the Department of Transport for the long-term planning for Perth and Peel, the key public transport initiatives are represented in Plan 7, with anticipated timing in Table 3.
