Traffic Calming Works - McCabe Street

IMPORTANT INFRASTRUCTURE WORKS NOTICE: MCCABE STREET, TASKER PLACE INTERSECTION UPGRADE.

The City of Fremantle’s capital works programme requires the City to carry out traffic calming works at the intersection of McCabe Street and Tasker Place, North Fremantle.  The works are scheduled to begin 19 March 2019 to the 9 April 2019. All works will be conducted between the hours of 6.30am and 5.00pm with exception to the asphalt component which will be installed on the evening of Monday 8 April 2019.

The traffic calming will encorporate a raised asphalt platform, new road drainage, kerbing, footpaths and landscaping. Due to the location and nature of the asphalt component, Main Roads WA has advised that under the West Australian Traffic Management For Works On Road Code Of Practice (July 2014 revision) Section 5.2.2. the works have been classified as complex and high risk and consequently work can only be carried out at night. Therefore the City of Fremantle intends to install the asphalt on  Monday 8 April 2019 between the hours of 6pm and 6am.

This will involve the closure of McCabe Street, Tasker Place intersection for one night. Suitably qualified traffic management will be in attendance and implement the necessary detours to limit any inconvenience caused.

Thank you for your co-operation in this matter and we regret any inconvenience caused.

If you have any enquiries, please contact City of Fremantle's customer service team on 9432 9999.

 

Are You Watching Your Waste?

Our friends at WMRC are running a new program, "Waste Watchers", a collection of workshops and upskilling events designed to give you the skills to live a low waste, sustainable life.

Their recent Waste Survey results indicate that respondents want to create less waste, but find it tricky and time-consuming. Their new hands-on, interactive Waste Watchers Workshops take these factors into consideration. Do one workshop. Do them all. The choice is yours!

Introducing Waste Watchers Workshops:

 A short, engaging yet informative introduction to the world of waste and what you can do to minimise your impact.

In addition to short workshop sessions, residents will also have the opportunity to go on facility tours to see where the waste and recycling goes after it has been collected from your kerbside.

Speak to the experts and get all your waste and recycling questions answered plus find out where you can go to access more information.

Join your local community as you achieve your waste reduction goals, with follow-up and support throughout.
