Bar­rack Street Road Works and Lane Clo­sures

Western Suburbs Weekly - - City of Perth News -

The Wa­ter Cor­po­ra­tion and City of Perth are work­ing to­gether to de­liver up­grades along Bar­rack Street from Mon­day, 13 April 2015. The Bar­rack Street projects are tak­ing place be­tween St Ge­orges Ter­race and Welling­ton Street. The Wa­ter Cor­po­ra­tion is up­grad­ing a wa­ter main, and City of Perth is con­vert­ing Bar­rack Street to two-way traf­fic. Th­ese projects are be­ing de­liv­ered in par­al­lel to min­imise com­mu­nity dis­rup­tion over the long term. For the du­ra­tion of both projects, sec­tions of Bar­rack Street will be re­duced to one lane of north­bound traf­fic. While th­ese projects may cause in­con­ve­nience in the short term, they are be­ing un­der­taken now to en­sure Perth, its road net­work and wa­ter sys­tem are ready to fa­cil­i­tate the fu­ture needs of our grow­ing city. City of Perth CEO Gary Stevenson said the con­ver­sion of Bar­rack Street will re­vive the his­tor­i­cally im­por­tant precinct and ready the CBD road net­work to fa­cil­i­tate the El­iz­a­beth Quay devel­op­ment. Pedes­trian ac­cess to busi­nesses in the area will be main­tained at all times dur­ing busi­ness hours for the du­ra­tion of the up­grades.
