Along Scarborough Beach Road between Glendalough Train Station and Scarborough Beach. This has been an idea that has been on the drawing board for over a decade.
The Australian Government funding of $2 million through the Urban Congestion Fund for a business case, the City will work with experts to assess a range of technology to support the implementation of a Trackless Tram system from Glendalough Train Station to Scarborough Beach.
This major urban regeneration project is part of the City’s broader vision to revitalise the Stirling City Centre to become Perth’s second CBD and transform it into a vibrant, urban area with increased jobs and housing.
Under the City’s vision, Trackless Trams would extend 7km from Glendalough Station to Scarborough Beach to offer contemporary, sustainable transport that’s less disruptive and more cost effective to build while retaining the benefits of light rail.
The work will be undertaken in two packages, with package one to determine and assess the range of technology available to support Trackless Trams, along with associated infrastructure requirements and any approvals required.
A good idea that has been a long time coming. The local residence will benefit with an alternative extra supply of transport services muchly needed. Tram it to the beach to swim will be far more sensible with no more parking required. The numbers able to access the beach is limited parking at a premium.
Literally thousands more people every day will have an opportunity to enjoy the beach activities. To get to the other beaches along the coast just jump on the Sunset Coast Bus or other Metro buses running along the coast.
