Streets to be re­ju­ve­nated

Cockburn Gazette - - OPINION -

A 300m strip of Spear­wood Av­enue could be in line for spruc­ing up.

Early ideas be­ing looked into by City of Cock­burn in­clude new screen­ing and flora be­tween Rockingham Road and Adela Place.

In 2007, the whole length of Spear­wood Av­enue was ded­i­cated as “Friend­ship Way” and di­vided into six sec­tions re­flect­ing links to Cock­burn’s sis­ter cities, peace, Aus­tralia and Nyun­gar peo­ple.

The sec­tion un­der con­sider- ation is “Peace”, with Deputy Mayor Carol Reeve-Fowkes push­ing for coun­cil to get the ball rolling.

“The in­tent is to give the area a facelift and pro­vide more visu­ally at­trac­tive screen­ing,” she said.
