Success Hill to Railway Parade Principal Shared Path

Consultation has concluded

1 July 2019

Consultation on the three alignment options for the Success Hill to Railway Parade Principal Shared Path (PSP) alignment has concluded.

Background

Several engagements on the project have occurred since late 2016. Feedback on the initial alignment plan developed in 2016 showed a preference that the path take a verge alignment. This concept was developed and presented to community in January 2018, with feedback showing significant concerns about tree loss. The verge alignment was endorsed by Council in February 2018 on the condition that the detailed design addressed these concerns. The detailed design process took six months to complete due to the complexity of designing the path to minimise impacts to trees. Once completed, the route alignment outlined in the detailed design was marked out within the verge (using spray paint) and a site walk through with project stakeholders and community members took place in November 2018. During the walk-through exercise with the community and project stakeholders, the community members presented their desire to consider alternative options that did not impact the trees in the verge space and expressed verbal support to explore narrowing the road in order to achieve this outcome.

Recent work

Given this represented a significant shift in the initial feedback from community, two further additional alignment options for the PSP were investigated that used a portion of the road space to accommodate the path without impacting trees in the verge. Along with the original verge alignment, these were published for community feedback in May 2019.

Each option contains a description along with an artist’s impression of how the option may look if constructed. To view the three proposed alignment options, please click here

Current

The Town is working with the Department of Transport and Main Roads WA to finalise the Consultation Report. The Report was due to be published in June 2019, however it has been delayed due to additional work being required from project stakeholders and will be published in late July 2019.
