The endorsed concept plan for 90 degree parking along the southern side of McCartney Crescent is being reviewed to fit in with the newly planned traffic calming measures for McCartney Crescent, developed with community input.
A Request for Quotation for the McCartney Crescent engineering detail design for parking has closed and is being reviewed for consultant selection. These construction works will follow the traffic calming works and will be programmed to minimise impact on Perth Football Club home games for the 2018 season.
Unrelated water and gas main works are currently occurring in nearby streets.
Printed LPRP community updates available online
May 30, 2017
The Town has begun including a printed Lathlain Precinct Redevelopment Project community update with the quarterly Life in the Park residents' publication. Edition 1 was sent out at the beginning of March, and Edition 2 will be sent out at the beginning of June. The printed updates are for people who might not be following the project's progress on this website or though the e-newsletter.
An independent road safety audit was recently undertaken for Bishopsgate Street (Goddard Street to Roberts Road/Miller Street Street Roundabout) where major interface works with West Coast Eagles facilities are planned. This was undertaken as part of the Metro Central Joint Development Assessment Panel's approval of the West Coast Eagles' development application. The Town will be working collaboratively with the relevant stakeholders to reduce any risks identified.
Other Zone 7 updates include:
Roberts Road upgrade
Road treatments are in the early stage of installation along Roberts Road on both approaches to the roundabout at Bishopsgate Street/Roberts Road/Miller Street. These treatments are reverse ‘s’-type lane deviations which will aid in slowing vehicles as they enter the roundabout.
Other treatments being considered along the section of Roberts Road between McCartney Crescent and Bishopsgate Street include the following:
New entry statement with contrasting pavement at the intersection Roberts Road and Planet Street.
Additional pedestrian refuge islands, including path connections.
Other streetscape enhancements including verge beautification.
Proposed McCartney Crescent streetscape upgrade – integration with Zone 2
Alterations to on-street parking - at verge level, nose-in (90 degree) parking is proposed.
New shared-use paths.
Landscaping upgrades, both hard (eg: paving, gravel etc) and soft (eg: plants, shrubs, grass etc) treatments.
On-road raised plateau-type treatments to match the existing one at the Lathlain Place intersection.
