Bartley Terrace Streetscape Upgrade - Stage 2

In 2015 we consulted with the local West Lakes Shore/Semaphore Park community on the proposed upgrade of Bartley Terrace from West Lakes Boulevard to Bower Road. This upgrade was initiated as a road safety project to address safety concerns along Bartley Terrace and to renew existing road assets.

The key themes that came out of the consultation at the time were:

  • Dedicated cycle lanes
  • Protected right turns
  • Indented parking where high parking demand
  • Road widening where required
  • Improved footpaths
  • Shared off road paths
  • Improved landscaping
  • Improved reserve landscaping and paths
  • Possible artworks and themes along the street
  • Integrated shopping precinct
    • Pedestrian crossing
    • Bus stop locations – offset
    • Improved post office box location
    • Roundabouts
    • Possible 40kph zone
    • Landscaping
    • Connection with the reserve

For additional background information about the Bartley Terrace Streetscape project and how we got to the concept plans, you can view the consultation report.

We have since completed Stage 1 of the works from Greenfield to Bower Road and we are now designing Stage 2 – Greenfield Terrace to Anglers Court.

Stage 2 work proposes to include:

  • Road resurfacing from Greenfield Terrace to Anglers Court
  • Reconstruction of kerb and gutter on both sides of the road
  • Installation of a new roundabout at Fairford Terrace / Bartley Terrace intersection
  • Installation of a new zebra crossing on Bartley Terrace at the shopping precinct
  • Installation of a new zebra crossing on Bartley Terrace at the Bartley Tavern
  • Planting of new trees and landscaping (possible water sensitive rain gardens)
  • Renewal of footpaths on both sides of the road
  • Renewal of footpaths in Neighbourhood reserve
  • Upgrade of Road lighting to LED Lighting

The Bartley streetscape plan was endorsed by the Council on 21 March 2016.

Fairford Terrace Road Rehabilitation & Traffic Safety Improvements

The roadway and kerb and gutter in Fairford Terrace between Bartley Terrace and Recreation Parade are due for renewal. When planning road projects, we also investigate current and future transport demands within the local street and surrounding street network to determine what improvements can be made to ensure that the road can operate as safely and as efficiently as possible.

We have heard concerns from residents in Fairford Terrace in relation to vehicle numbers and the speed they are travelling at. A petition has also been received with over 144 local residents reconfirming these concerns and requesting us to investigate possible traffic treatments to assist with vehicle calming.

We have developed a draft concept plan for Fairford Terrace and would like to hear your views.

The proposed scope of works for Fairford Terrace include:

Bartley Terrace to Recreation Parade

  • Road resurfacing from Bartley Terrace to Recreation Parade.
  • Reconstruction of kerb and gutter on both sides of the road between Bartley Terrace to Recreation Parade.
  • Realignment and narrowing of the roadway travel lanes to promote a slow speed environment and improve road safety.
  • Realignment and narrowing of intersections with adjacent streets to slow vehicles speeds and improve road safety with kerb buildouts, street print and potential raingardens and associated landscaping of the verge.
  • Installation of a zebra crossing and associated signage, to provide a safe crossing point to the local park.
  • Concrete brick paved parking bays between property driveways to ensure parking in the street remains available.
  • New pedestrian access ramps across all intersections.
  • Bicycle access ramp on the Northern side of the Recreation parade roundabout.

Recreation Parade to Bower Road

  • Realigning and narrowing of Intersections with adjacent streets to slow vehicles speeds and improve road safety with Line marked buildouts only between Recreation Parade and Bower Road.
  • Installation of a line marked dedicated parking bay on the Western side of Fairford Terrace.
  • Concrete brick paved parking bays between property driveways on the Northern side of the street to ensure parking on the Northern side of the street is still provided where possible.
  • Re-alignment of Bower Road intersection to provide dedicated left and right turn lanes for vehicles to exit onto Bower Road.
  • New pedestrian access ramps across all intersections.

Timing of Works

We anticipate that both Bartley Terrace and Fairford Terrace construction would occur at the same time in the 21/22 financial year to minimise the disruption to local residents and business owners. Once the contractor has been appointed, they will notify directly impacted residents of their timing of works.
