In November 2015, the Committee for Perth and partner RAC launched Get a Move On! – a year-long research project which directly responds to community concerns that the region lacks a comprehensive road, public and active transport network to meet Perth and Peel’s 21st century mobility needs. This Perth in Focus luncheon will feature a keynote address from UK Professor Jon Shaw, co-author of ‘The Transport Debate’. OurGet a Move On!
