What's happening on the Main Street?
Whilst the new Margaret River Main Street is open to vehicles, there are some final bits of the project being completed including addressing any reported defects.
You can expect to see contractors out and about working on these things in the weeks ahead:
- Decommissioning and removing old street lights & infilling footings (after the school holidays)
- Testing and commissioning new street lights
- Installing new bin surrounds (we're waiting for them to arrive)
- Installing retractable bollards at the Festival Precinct (there's a delay in these arriving due to the global supply chain)
- Placing pedestrian safety signage at crossing points
- Any minor defects for the contractor to fix (similar to handover of a new home or renovation, any defects are reported to the builder to address).
We are also working on:
- The pathway link to the Fearn Ave toilets
- Wayfinding, parking and no smoking signage.
The Shire will be applying to Main Roads WA for a 40km/h speed limit along the street. We're collecting some post-opening traffic data to support this request.
Pedestrians, please remember to give way to vehicles at the new crossing points.
