A Fresh New Look for Bar­rack Street

Western Suburbs Weekly - - City Of Perth News -

Re­tail­ers, mo­torists, pedes­tri­ans and cy­clists are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the new two-way con­ver­sion of Bar­rack Street.

Lord Mayor Lisa Scaf­fidi said the Bar­rack Street two-way project was a mas­sive un­der­tak­ing and the City was thank­ful to af­fected re­tail­ers for their pa­tience dur­ing the sev­en­month project. “The new two-way street fea­tures ded­i­cated cy­cle lanes and pro­vides a new south­bound route to Bar­rack Square Jetty and El­iz­a­beth Quay,” Ms Scaf­fidi said. “In ad­di­tion to the new traf­fic di­rec­tion and cy­cle lanes, new street fur­ni­ture and bike racks will be in­stalled over the next few months.” The Bar­rack Street two-way con­ver­sion helps to im­prove ac­ces­si­bil­ity to the City and en­sures its road net­work and in­fra­struc­ture will be ready to ac­com­mo­date the de­mands of the State Gov­ern­ment’s ma­jor in­fra­struc­ture devel­op­ments. “With new devel­op­ments like El­iz­a­beth Quay and Perth City Link ex­pected to at­tract mil­lions of visi­tors once com­plete, it is im­por­tant we, as cus­to­di­ans of the City, con­tinue to im­prove our fa­cil­i­ties and in­fra­struc­ture to ac­com­mo­date fu­ture de­mands,” Ms Scaf­fidi said.
