South Terrace streetscape improvement

We're planning to upgrade five intersections on South Terrace over the coming years to slow traffic and help create a pedestrian friendly environment that supports street life.


Each location will include a reduced road width to make it safer for people to cross the street and removing and replacing temporary speed bumps with a raised platform, surfaced with red asphalt and stencil markings to delineate the section and encourage drivers to slow down. The footpath will also be widened to create a bigger pedestrian area and add new paving, street furniture and trees to create a better space for people.

A map of the proposed works between Douro Road and South Street and the order of completion can be downloaded here.



Location two (Jenkin Street / South Terrace)

Location one is now complete and location two will be completed in two phases:

Phase One - We’ll be starting in ground drainage works at the intersection of Jenkin Street and South Terrace 13 May 2019. Access will be maintained during this time; however, at times traffic may be reduced to one lane. Traffic management will be in place at all times to facilitate safe traffic movement.

The drainage works will include installation of new pipework, replacement of damaged soak wells and installation of new drains. The drainage upgrade is to prepare for the next section of the South Terrace streetscape improvement (phase two).


Phase Two - The streetscape component is subject to approval in the 2019/20 budget. The design inspiration for location two is the mosaic located outside the Meeting Place, part of a community-led bush tucker art project launched in 2008. An early artists impression is included below and you can see the mosaic on the footpath outside the Meeting Place.

Detailed streetscape design, incorporating this mosaic inspired artwork, will be shared in further updates. Implementation of the street scaping design is proposed to follow the completion of the drainage works. However this is subject to budget approval.

  • Thank you for your feedback!

    4 months ago

    Thanks to everyone who took the time to share their feedback on location one and ideas for location two of the South Terrace Streetscape Improvement.

    Key topics and ideas raised (both positive and negative) include pedestrian crossing, speed of traffic, trees, white lines, parking, street furniture and speed bumps. You can find this compiled in the feedback report, available here.

    Update on location one – Tactiles have now been installed at location one. The need for line marking is also noted and Main Roads WA are responsible for carrying out line marking at the completion of our works. Main Roads were requested to complete the line marking and we are anticipating installation during March. A loading bay for businesses is proposed along Little Lefroy Lane.

    Location two - We're incorporating your feedback on street furniture, bins, bike racks, trees and shade, tactiles and parking for location two. The City will make the order of works clear and explain the process (e.g. line marking). Another idea is to create an ‘explainer’ to communicate how the new drainage works. An increased focus is already being given to consulting with businesses at the intersection and supplying detailed information in advance, and continuing updates.

    Location two will be completed in two phases. The first is in ground drainage works to prepare for the streetscape improvement and phase two is the streetscape improvement which is subject to funding in the 2019/20 budget.

  • Recommendation on South Terrace upgrade before council on 13 December

    by Admin, over 1 year ago

    The consultation process for the South Terrace pedestrian safety and streetscape improvements ended on 10 November 2018. Thank you to everyone who contributed.

    We received 117 responses to the survey that gave us some valuable feedback on the proposed traffic treatment and streetscape improvements to South Terrace, between Sydney Street and Little Lefroy Lane.

    This is what you told us:

    • 72.6% of people support the proposed changes, with 53.8% indicating they ‘strongly support’ the changes and a further 18.8% supportive of ‘most changes’.
    • The proposal to improve the streetscape was the most supported change, with over 90% of respondents answering...

    • 72.6% of people support the proposed changes, with 53.8% indicating they ‘strongly support’ the changes and a further 18.8% supportive of ‘most changes’.
    • The proposal to improve the streetscape was the most supported change, with over 90% of respondents answering positively to the proposed new paving, street furniture, trees and planting.
    • The proposal to reduce the carriageway to a trafficable width of 7 metres is the least supported change. While 58.2 % of people support narrowing the road to make it easier for people to cross the street safely, 22.2 % felt this would create more dangerous conditions for cyclists.
    • The need for South Terrace to be calmed from South Street to Douro Road was mentioned by numerous people, along with the need to protect the interests of people living in the side streets. A plan for the area bounded by South Street, Douro Road, Marine Terrace and Hampton Road was suggested, following concerns that the proposed treatment at Little Lefroy and South Terrace will create traffic problems elsewhere.
    • The need for a cycle lane on South Terrace between South Street and Douro Road was frequently mentioned, along with a desire to see similar treatments implemented at other nodes in this section.

    You can read the community engagement report here.

    Council will make a decision on the design to be built when they meet on Wednesday 13 December 2108 at 6.00 pm.

    The report to council recommends:

    • The road be narrowed to make it safer for people to cross the street and encourage drivers to slow down in this section.
    • The temporary speed bumps be replaced with a raised platform to slow drivers down.
    • The road be surfaced with red asphalt and stencil markings to slow drivers down.
    • The footpath be widened, new paving, street furniture, paving and trees be added to improve the street.
    • The amount of alfresco space be increased.

    You can read the report to council in the agenda for 13 December here.

    You can address the council before they decide if the concept plan should be implemented as recommended at the council meeting. The meeting commences at 6.00 pm in council chambers (City of Fremantle Administration building, 8 William Street Fremantle). If you want to speak to council, please arrive 20 minutes early to register for public question time.
