High Street Upgrade


The intersection of High Street and Stirling Highway needs major improvements to make it safer and reduce traffic congestion.

The proposed $118 million High Street Upgrade from Carrington Street to Stirling Highway project is jointly funded by the Australian ($73.62 million) and State ($44.38 million) governments and is part of the road and rail infrastructure package to improve Perth’s transport network.

The initial concept for High Street, released in 2013, is no longer the preferred option. In March 2018 Main Roads WA released a new draft concept plan for the upgrade of High Street.

Over 300 people provided feedback and further consultation was carried out with the City of Fremantle. An updated draft concept was prepared taking into consideration this feedback, see the August 2018 newsletter for further information.

Consultation on the draft concept is being led by Main Roads.

The City of Fremantle encourages all who are impacted by or interested in the upgrade of High Street to take part in engagement opportunities during the consultation period.
