This project is not currently open for engagement.

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 proposed order of completion can be downloaded here or refer to the timeline on this page.



Section two (Jenkin Street / South Terrace)

With location one (Little Lefroy Lane) complete location two (Jenkin Street) is proposed to be carried out in two phases.

  • Phase one in-ground drainage works now complete (replacement of damaged soak wells, installation of new drains).
  • Phase two (streetscape works) - subject to funding. 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.

    Thanks to the residents and business owners who attended the public session on 2 November 2017 at the Meeting Place in South Fremantle. We've added the following information in response to questions we were asked at the session.

    What's the overall plan for South Terrace between Douro Road and South Street?

    The City has proposed a five year plan for South Terrace as part of the South Terrace Traffic calming and street scape improvement between Douro Road and South Street. The below proposed nodes are subject to council funds. The development and design will be dependent on the success and feedback of the first node at Little Lefroy to Sydney Street.

    The five proposed areas are indicated below. These will be designed and implemented between 2018 - 2019 financial year through to 2021 - 2022. The order of installation is yet to be determined.

    • Charles St intersection node

    • Jenkins St intersection node

    • Nelson Street node

    • Scott Street node

    Are there any other improvements planned for South Terrace?

    As part of streetscape improvement, entry statement works are planned for the Douro Road and South Street intersections, in addition to resurfacing works and pavement improvements.
