Safe Active Street Program - Elizabeth Street and Jenkins Avenue

The City is progressing with a proposal to modify Jenkins and Elizabeth Streets to implement a safe active street project for the residents of Nedlands.

The project is being undertaken in partnership with the Department of Transport as part of their Safe Active Street Program to deliver safer and more people-friendly active streets. This project starts from the Town of Claremont boundary at Bay Road, along Jenkins Avenue to Dalkeith Road, to connect with Elizabeth Street and stopping at the Broadway intersection with Elizabeth Street (City of Perth boundary).

The project follows on from other projects recently constructed by the Department of Transport in Shakespeare Street, Mount Hawthorn; Leake Street and May Street in Bayswater and Surrey Road in Belmont. The outcomes of these projects are influencing the best design solution for the City of Nedlands' project.

The focus on the design is based around safety, residential amenity and users of the streets to provide a safer road environment for everyone. The design establishes a higher priority for pedestrians and bike riders (of all ages) but does not reduce the amenity for the vehicle driver by changing intersection priorities and creating a 30kmh low-speed environment.

The Council endorsed the community engagement report and the amended concept designs at its meeting on 26 June 2018. The amended concept designs resulted from feedback received from the engagement activities.

Further specific engagement on the proposed detailed design (at 85% completion) has been undertaken with residents, schools and other stakeholders.

The City has now completed the designs and the tendering process for construction has commenced.
