Lighter note: King Street pedestrian mall trial

THE Note reckons any initiative to create a bustling city centre after knock-off time should be met with a smile and on some occasions a bit of a plug. This time, The Note wants to give a shout out to the City of Perth and its plans to try and inject a bit more life into the city on Friday evenings. Starting on Friday October 12, the King Street retail strip between Hay and Murray Streets will be closed to traffic to create a pedestrian mall between 6.30pm and midnight. The Note hopes that the one-month trial will prove successful and perhaps the new late-night mall could eventually include some market-like stalls that are often found in pedestrian malls throughout the world. Although, given this one is located in up-market King Street, The Note wonders whether hot-dogs would be replaced with free-range sausages on a sourdough bun? The King Street pedestrian mall trial will conclude on Friday November 2 and the City of Perth is requesting feedback from residents and businesses in the immediate vicinity.
