Facelift for Freo strip

A CONCEPT plan for the streetscape redevelopment of Cantonment Street, Fremantle is being released in December for 10 weeks of public comment.

The Fremantle City Council wants to consider the design and public comments in March.

The design includes:

* Widened footpaths at intersections and other pedestrian crossing points;

* Traffic calming;

* New footpath paving;

* Street tree planting;

* Seats, bins, cycle rails and drinking fountains; and

* New street lighting.

The plan incorporates the roundabout and pedestrian crossings at the intersection of Queen and Cantonment streets and allows for the installation of traffic signals if pedestrian numbers reach the point where the roundabout becomes gridlocked.

Works on the streetscape are due to start in May.

Funding for the roadworks has been allocated in the council’s 2000-01 budget for roadworks and streetscape improvements to the street.

In February council endorsed the brief for a planning and urban design study of the Cantonment Street area of the central city.

Andrew Sullivan Architect and Ecoscape were appointed to conduct the study, which started in June.

The street is an important public space in the core of Fremantle’s retail precinct.

It houses a major retail centre and a number of other commercial, residential and community uses and extends from the city centre’s north east entrance at Parry Street to the Market Street city axis.
