In early 2020, the Fremantle-based teams of Department of Transport will be relocating to the new Kings Square, currently under redevelopment. We’ll take occupancy of the 4th floor of what was the old Myer building in the middle of Fremantle. While it’s not a big move geographically for staff, we’re taking the opportunity to engage with Your Move to promote alternative modes of commuting such as cycling, walking and public transport, and to take full advantage of the building’s modern end of trip facilities. Staff will also be transitioning to an Activity Based Workplace model, so there are a lot of changes afoot.

We have just started our journey and are busy making plans … such as ensuring all teams have business Smart Riders (for travel to other office locations), provide information regarding public transport options and cycling routes, and to survey all staff about their current travel arrangements. We also have a number of ad hoc initiatives planned, such as a stair climb challenge, to encourage moving towards a healthier lifestyle and to one which is more sustainable. Stay tuned for more ...
