Morning Tea – Mayor Mark Irwin – Roundtable Discussion
Join us for a discussion on the Trackless Trams and other Business Growth Opportunities
Scarborough Beach is one of the most popular destinations in Perth and is an area that has experienced significant redevelopment in recent years. Its numerous restaurants, entertainment and accommodation businesses make up an important part of the Stirling Region’s economy.
The City of Stirling is exploring the opportunity of implementing a Trackless Tram within the Scarborough Beach Road Activity Corridor that will connect the Perth CBD to the Stirling City Centre and Scarborough Beach – effectively linking the city to the beach. This vision aims to support and attract local business, create more jobs, enhance tourism and reduce traffic and parking pressures in the area.
Join us for a Round Table Discussion with…
- Mark Irwin, City of Stirling Mayor
- Andrew Murphy, Director of Infrastructure
- Michelle Wolsoncroft, Manager of Strategy and Performance
Come along to hear what’s happening and share your point of view about the future potential of our business community.
Be part of the discussion.
