  • Transportation engineering


In 2015, the City of Nedlands commenced a project plan for the future of the Captain Stirling Neighbourhood Centre. They focused on redeveloping the Nedlands Town Centre for retail, commercial and residential purposes.

The plan represented a significant step forward in facilitating the growth and redevelopment of the Nedlands Town Centre. During the community consultation period, many respondents suggested improving traffic, transport and movement. As a result, SLR was engaged to undertake transport modelling.


SLR was commissioned to provide transport engineering input to the Nedlands Town Centre Development Framework.

Our assessment documents the traffic engineering analysis of the various infrastructure options available to provide accessibility to the Stirling Highway corridor to support intensification of the activity as envisaged by the City’s draft planning framework.

SLR undertook the following works:

  • Review of existing Stirling Highway using AIMSUN Models
  • Base case model calibration and validation
  • Future year modelling
  • Comparison of network and intersection traffic operations
