Rokeby up­grades start

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

THE City of Su­bi­aco has be­gun $4.3 mil­lion worth of up­grades on Rokeby Road’s streetscape to im­prove safety and aes­thet­ics.

The works, which be­gan last month, in­clude mul­tiuse light­ing poles to ac­com­mo­date ban­ners and over­head sig­nage, up­grades to me­dian strips and rais­ing the num­ber of carpark­ing bays to en­cour­age al­fresco din­ing.

Su­bi­aco chief ex­ec­u­tive Don Bur­nett said the City was work­ing to en­sure min­i­mal dis­rup­tion to busi­nesses and vis­i­tors. The City has co-or­di­nated the pro­ject with the Wa­ter Cor­po­ra­tion and gas util­ity ATCO, which will also be hold­ing works in Rokeby Road in the com­ing months.

“Th­ese up­grades are go­ing to im­prove the look and feel of our iconic strip, fix some drainage is­sues and al­low for safer pedes­trian and ve­hi­cle move­ment,” Mr Bur­nett said.

“By the end of the year, vis­i­tors to the area will see bet­ter light­ing, new street ban­ners, street fur­ni­ture and freshly paved sur­faces.”
