​​​Cottesloe - Principal Shared Path Construction

  • 2.8 kilometre shared path extension along the Fremantle rail line from Grant Street Station to Victoria Street Station in Cottesloe is now open
  • Improve safety and accessibility between Cottesloe and Perth City


This project provides a continuous off-road facility, reducing possible conflict with road traffic and providing a high-quality link to key tourist attractions.

Working closely with the Town of Cottesloe, we have created a design that complements the surrounding environment between the railway line and Curtin Avenue.

Open the extended path PDF to read about the first of two stages to the extension.

This project will ensure everyone is able to travel safely on a dedicated connection.  ​
Works included:
  • Extension of the existing PSP by 2.8 kilometres to separate pedestrians and cyclists from motorists and provide access to train stations, the Mosman Park Activity Centre and Cottesloe Primary School.
  • Provide a pedestrian and cyclist crossing at Eric Street to avoid cyclists crossing at signalised intersections.
  • Install new lighting, signs and pavement markings.

A landscape architect has been engaged to develop the area along the path. This will include biodiverse planting, spaces for art, rest and ex​ploration, and a variety of other facilities and amenities, as well as applications to maintain the path and address erosion. 

The Town of Cottesloe will release a concept will be released in the coming months for feedback and the project of developing the corridor will continue over the coming years. 

Initial planting has begun and will continue in phases as advised by the Town’s Environmental Officers and relevant consultants.
