Construction of shared path on Stirling Road Bridge (24 September – 11 October 2021)

Works involve removing existing asphalt, upgrading the shared path and installing lighting footings.

Pedestrians will be detoured to Claremont Crescent, and cyclists will be detoured to Shenton Road. 

Work will take place from 7am to 7pm Monday to Sunday with a contingency to extend through to 10pm from 3-11 October if necessary.


Pedestrian underpass (mid-2021 – December 2021)

The pedestrian underpass will be closed to allow for works such as installing CCTV cameras, permanent lighting, retaining walls, safety barriers and drainage infrastructure. During this time, the eastern pedestrian crossing will be available to use (east of the station platform).

There will also be the installation of sheet piles to the west side of the northern entrance (Claremont Crescent side) of the underpass to facilitate the installation of drainage soakwells.


Bus interchange (from 20 September 2021)

Road realignment works on Gugeri Street from Stirling Road to Bay View Terrace will take place to improve access into the pedestrian underpass, accommodate drainage and build the bus interchange.

A change to the traffic arrangement along Gugeri Street will see two-way traffic maintained with the central medium strip removed, speed reduced to 40km/h and delineation between traffic lanes.

From 20-25 September, night works will commence to safely enable Western Power to remove the light poles and then temporary lights will be in place. A one-way traffic management will be arranged during night works to safely facilitate works.

Traffic management during standard work hours:

The current traffic management in place extends from Australind Street to Stirling Road:


Landscaping

The project team is working closely with the Town of Claremont to undertake landscaping in mid-2021. Planting choice will be suitable to the local climate, native, waterwise and endemic to the area.

The choice of trees on Claremont Crescent West will be decided in consultation with the METRONET Noongar Reference Group and residents on this street.
