There have been many innovations and advances in transport technology over the last 100 years.

Now, we are on the cusp of one of the biggest disruptions to transport as we know it.

Automated vehicle (AV) technology is rapidly advancing and these vehicles could deliver many benefits, including improved mobility and independence for many, and reduced crash risk and severity by removing human error from the driving task.

Our Trial is not a pursuit of technology for technology’s sake, but a commitment to ensure AV technology can be applied to solve urban and regional mobility challenges in Australia.

We want to ensure that our community, industry and government alike have an opportunity to experience an automated vehicle in a complex traffic environment while the technology remains largely in development.

By working together with our partners we’re one step closer to readying Australia for the safe transition to automated vehicles and our future world of safer, easier and cleaner mobility.

FThe City of Joondalup has attracted an average of about $360 million per annum in building approvals over the last 10 years. Around 45 per cent of these building approvals have been non-residential – including retail, health, education and a range of other commercial uses– totalling about $1.7 billion in non-residential approvals over the 10-years to June 2017.

Read more


With a number of large projects either under construction, approved or in advanced planning stages, including the Primewest development that will house 800 State Government employees, Ocean Reef Marina and the proposed City Centre Development in Boas Place, the City of Joondalup is well placed to continue attracting a significant proportion of Perth’s commercial property investment.

The Joondalup Activity Centre Plan (JACP) has been approved by the Western Australian Planning Commission and will facilitate the development of the City Centre over the next decade and will further encourage high density residential and mixed use development, with plans for even higher quality public spaces to attract businesses and residents to the City.

The JACP envisages an increased urban intensity with more and taller buildings in the next era of the City’s development and anticipates a doubling of the current non-residential floor space by 2050. The wide streets and urban grid of the City Centre allow for redevelopment and there are also large areas that are yet to be developed providing excellent opportunities for future activity.
