High Street Upgrade - Stirling Highway to Carrington Street

The upgrade of High Street from Stirling Highway to Carrington Street is designed to improve safety, freight efficiency and the general flow of traffic for all road users travelling into and out of Fremantle.


The current layout of High Street from Carrington Street to Stirling Highway intersection, provides direct access to several local roads and driveways, resulting in stop-start conditions, heightened safety risks and congestion.

An initial concept, released in 2013, is no longer the preferred option.

Following consultation with the City of Fremantle, and taking into consideration previous stakeholder feedback from local residents and stakeholders, a new draft concept plan has been developed.

Draft concept plan

The draft concept plan proposes construction of a roundabout at the intersection of High Street and Stirling Highway, a wide median to separate traffic and preserve a number of mature trees, and a single lane service road for residents north of High Street.

What next?

Consultation is now underway with the City of Fremantle and we will be speaking with key stakeholders, local community groups and residents, together with the freight industry to develop and refine a final concept and scope of works.

A program for consultation to enable the community to access information about the project is in development. A number of channels are being considered including online, newsletters and neighbourhood drop-in sessions.
