The City of Subiaco will be undertaking works on the Rokeby Road median strip between Bagot and Roberts roads in July.
Following an Arborist report, Council endorsed a detailed physical investigation to identify the extent of the Plane trees’ root systems in the existing traffic medians in Rokeby Road.
Results from this investigation will determine the feasibility of a partial or complete removal of the median strip in order to improve the streetscape aesthetic and provide a safe environment.
Any further work will be subject to future council resolutions and public consultation.
In order to carry out the investigation, 1.5 metres of the existing curbs and paving will be removed on each side of all trees growing in the median.
The removal of the curb and paving will be conducted at night after 7pm and the Arborist investigation will be conducted during the day. The works are expected be completed in July.
