Main Roads WA High Street Upgrade

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

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


Background

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.


Main Roads Consultation

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.

An updated draft concept was prepared taking into consideration feedback from the community and City of Fremantle, see the August 2018 newsletter for further information.

  • Release of Golf Course Concept

    24 December, 2019

    To achieve a quality outcome for the golf course realignment (required as a result of the Main Roads WA High St project) the City of Fremantle engaged highly respected specialist golf course designers to reconfigure the course around some challenging constraints.

    Over the past 5 months 2 public workshops have been held with the golf club members to present options, which provided the opportunity for input and feedback. The City’s team and the Golf Course Designers met with the lessee numerous times and tested many options to find the best solution.

    A preferred concept has been endorsed by the lessee and is available to download from the project page on the City's website here: www.fremantle.wa.gov.au/fremantle-public-golf-course-and-clubhouse-facility
