Rokeby Road South Streetscape Masterplan approved

The Rokeby Road South Streetscape Masterplan was approved at this week’s Council meeting.

The masterplan addresses safety issues on Rokeby Road between Bagot Road and Thomas Street, while also enhancing the existing character and amenity of the precinct.

It was developed with extensive community consultation – including two in-person workshops – and advertised for comment at the same time as the Rokeby Road South Development Plan which was approved by Council in March.

The City sought further advice from Main Roads WA and the Road Safety commission to make modifications to the draft masterplan in response to matters raised by the community, including:
  • amend the proposed staging of the masterplan to further minimise long-term disruption to businesses and other road users
  • include a desired target posted speed limit of 30km/h if achievable in addition to the initial target of 40km/h
  • provide an updated concept of the Rokeby Road and Thomas Street intersection.
