About the Commercial Vehicles Survey

The Transport Portfolio of the State Government of Western Australia consists of three agencies; the Department of Transport, Main Roads and Public Transport Authority. As a portfolio, the three agencies are responsible for public transport, building, maintaining and managing the State’s road network, effective management of travel demand, investment in cycling facilities and the provision of State strategies relating to moving people and freight.

The recent review of transport modelling across the whole of government highlighted the need for an integrated transport model – the Perth Transport Model. The Perth Transport Model will be aimed at addressing metropolitan Perth’s transport modelling needs for short-term network operational needs and strategic planning. The success of the Perth Transport Model will be conditional upon the availability of current and accurate data sourced from surveys, one of which is the Commercial Vehicles Survey.

An efficient freight movement is essential to Western Australia’s economy. More than 60 million tonnes of freight moves through the Perth metropolitan area each year; therefore, it is essential that transport infrastructure is adequately designed to meet the State’s increasing freight management requirements. The Commercial Vehicles Survey aims to help Main Roads understand these requirements.

Main Roads WA is searching for qualified survey consultants to design, test and conduct the Commercial Vehicles Survey within the Perth metropolitan area, including the City of Mandurah and the Shire of Murray.

Further information is available in the tender, advertised on TendersWA.

The Transport Data Surveys Project covers two components:

  1. The Perth Area Travel and Household Survey (PATHS), and
  2. The Commercial Vehicles Survey.

The PATHS project has been underway since January 2016.
