An Urban Corridor strategy for Great Eastern Highway which integrates mixed land uses, landscape and multiple transport modes to create opportunities for improved amenity, economic development and intensification at the gateway to the City of Belmont and CBD.

The Goal

The Great Eastern Highway Urban Corridor Strategy creates a refreshing, transformative and innovative vision for one of Perth’s major traffic arteries. The Highway is curently dominated by traffic and creates a poor environment for intensification and redevelopment.

Our Role

TBB has facilitated this engagement process and coordinated the inputs of a multi disciplinary team.

Our Planning Frameworks team prepared the final strategy bringing together the specialist inputs and stakeholder views into a visionary framework.

The Outcome

The stategy envisions improved pedestrian and cycle amenity, landscape and parkland opportunites along the length of the Highway, intermittant connections and vistas to the Swan River and the creation of mixed use activity nodes and community places at significant intersections with local roads.

The strategy responds to the diverse nature of the corridor which inlcudes multi storey development at The Springs in the west to the unique Stables area along the Swan River at Ascot and the emerging Transit Oriented Development at Redcliffe in the east. The strategy promotes a varied design and built form response to each precinct at its interface with the Highway to ensure the inherent characteristics of the established neighbourhoods are enhanced and respected whilst opportunities for appropriate scaled infill development is planned for.

The strategy was developed collaboratively with the community and Government stakeholders through a series of vision and design workshops.
