Main Roads WA Road Network Operations Centre

This site visit is to the Main Roads WA Road Network Operations Centre. The Executive Director of Network Operations, Tony Earl, will explain the operation of the Centre and show us through the facility.

The Road Network Operations Centre (RNOC) is a purpose-built, world-class facility designed to optimise road network safety, performance and congestion management. In the tour of the RNOC, you will learn about the facility where the real-time control room responds to incidents, and controls the traffic signals, across the State. Throughout the RNOC you’ll see the real-time situational awareness tools in action, providing live information about the road traffic network. You will also see how Main Roads use data for performance-based decision making, and how they embed an area-based operating model to keep Western Australia moving.

We are limited to 15 people per visit to the Centre, so group A will visit in the morning and group B will visit in the afternoon.  We will be travelling by coach and whilst Group A is at the Centre in the morning, Group B will visit Kings Park and have morning tea on the lawn. After lunch Group B will visit the Centre and Group A will visit Kings Park and have afternoon tea.

Coach Travel:

We will be travelling by coach and the coach will stop at both Perth and Burswood to pick up participants.

Perth Pickup Point - Departure 8.45am: The pickup point is on the west side (i.e. Perth Railway Station side) of Beaufort Street between Roe Street and James Street.  The stop is immediately before James Street when heading north along Beaufort Street. This is a pickup bay specifically for Charter vehicles and it is signposted as "Tourist Stop Cultural Centre Beaufort Street".

Burswood Pickup Point – Departure 9.00am: Please note our coach is no longer able to use the car park that it has been using for the last three or four years. We are reverting to the car park that we previously used which is theBurswood Carpark adjacent to Charles Paterson Park just off Resort Drive on the eastern side of the Causeway.  The Burswood Car Park is shown on Google Maps and it is about 100 metres north of the intersection of Resort Drive and Great Eastern Highway. The Burswood Carpark is immediately south of the public toilet block.

 

When you are registering for the event please nominate whether you will be joining the Coach at Beaufort Street in the City or at Burswood.
