Delivery and Service Vehicle Access

The academic core at Curtin University's Bentley Campus is classified as a pedestrian zone. As such, a Vehicle Access Management Plan (VAMP) has been implemented on campus, to restrict the use of vehicles within this area and promote a safer environment for all pedestrians.

The Pedestrian Core will be in full operation Semester 1, 2016 from Monday January 22nd 2016.

All vehicle access to the core will be restricted between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:30 pm. Outside of these hours access will be via an approved Access Permit (see below).

Vehicle access to the Core will be as follows:

DAYTIME HOURS: 9am – 3:30pm.
Exceptions made for:

  • Emergency vehicles
  • Authorised small electric vehicles
    (maintenance, security and Curtin IT services)

AFTER HOURS: 3:30pm – 9am.
Only available for:

  • Approved permit holders
  • Emergency vehicles
  • Authorised small electric vehicles
    (maintenance, security and Curtin IT services)

General Information

We treat our pedestrians with the utmost respect and priority, and as such, all vehicles intending to access the pedestrian zone must observe the following:

  1. All access to the core will require an approved site access permit available from February 17 here on the Curtin website.
    Please note contractors will require an induction number in order to obtain an access permit.
  2. Short term 30 minute bays are available around the perimeter of the pedestrian zone and deliveries made between 9:00am and 3:30pm must be wheeled to their final destination.
  3. There is no change to procedures for emergency service vehicles.
  4. The speed limit is walking speed (5km/hr). All vehicles must give way to pedestrians and only use designated routes.
