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.
We will soon be conducting 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.
We continue to seek feedback on the draft concept plan. Feedback can be provided in a number of ways, with the online survey open until Thursday 31 May, and paper surveys available at the City of Fremantle Library until Thursday 31 May.
High Street Upgrade Drop-in Sessions took place at Stackwood on 30 April and 10 May with the events well attended and valuable feedback provided by the community that will be used to inform the preliminary design.
Have your say
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.
We are now inviting feedback on the draft concept plan through our online survey.
You can also comment at the City of Fremantle Library, where the concept plan will be on display and feedback forms will be available from Monday 7 May.
Or, visit us at the High Street Upgrade Drop-in Sessions where you can you speak to project team members about the upgrade.
- Stackwood, 10 Stack Street, Fremantle:
- Monday 30 April, 4pm to 7pm
- Thursday 10 May, 3pm to 6pm
After the survey closes on Thursday 31 May 2018 the feedback will be collated and considered during the concept design phase.
The concept design phase is expected to take up to six months, to ensure the upgrade meets the community’s needs as much as possible within the space, cost and operational constraints. We will provide the final plans and the result of your feedback at this time.
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.
