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.
Project Update - July 2018
Our July project update is now available. It provides information on the draft concept for the High Street Upgrade, key features of the proposed plan, key dates and answers to some frequently asked questions.
Thank you to the more than 300 people who provided feedback on the draft concept plan.
We’ve created a quick snapshot of the feedback with some key themes and results from the online survey.
Whether you attended a drop in session, went online to complete a survey or provided a submission your comments have been captured and are now being provided to the project team to review and feed into the concept design.
Draft concept plan
We are currently conducting a number of early site investigations and traffic surveys. The traffic surveys will be used to collect data on vehicle and pedestrian traffic in the project area. Foot and vehicle traffic will not be impacted during the surveys.
Throughout May we sought feedback from the community on the draft concept plan via an online survey, community drop-in sessions and letterbox drops.
The feedback and findings are now being collated and will be provided to the project team to review and inform a final concept and scope of works.
Consultation will continue with the City of Fremantle and key stakeholders over the next six months to ensure the upgrade meets the community's needs as much as possible within the space, cost and operational constraints.
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 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.
