Mews Road vehicle and pedestrian crossings
The Perth 2011 sailing championships has created some unique challenges for logistical and transport planners and one of the transport challenges is to move pedestrians and vehicles in and around the west end of the City and across the rail line into the Fishing Boat Harbour.
This project will result in the installation of a permanent vehicle crossing from Mews Road to Marine Terrace at the western end Esplanade Park abutting car park number 2. There will also be pedestrian crossings at this location. Carpark number 2 (at the end of Mews Road) will be closed for a period during the construction of the crossing and as this carpark is a location for tourist and school buses, a temporary bus bay has been created on Mews Road, opposite Mouat Street.
This project is being undertaken in collaboration with The Public Transport Authority and Department of Transport.
Week commencing 22 August 2011
Due to rain expected this week, it is anticipated that there may be delays in works this week.
Rapid progress of the project so far means the roadworks on the Fishing Boat Harbour side (Mews Road) are almost complete. Kerbing should be finalised (weather permitting) allowing the asphalt to be laid next week.
For the other side of the railway line (Marine Terrace), prourement is being finalised and commencement of construction works in the next couple of weeks.
The Public Transport Authority are progressing with the works on the pedestrian crossing and the closure of Carpark Number 2 (end of Marine Terrace) is anticipated to happen in approximately 2 weeks time.

Week commencing 26 September 2011
Road works including resurfacing, realignment and kerbing undertaken by the City are nearing a very successful completion along Mews Road. A few 'tidy ups' are still to be undertaken and we are awaiting the line markings to be undertaken by Main Roads WA.
On the other side of the rail line (Marine Terrace), construction is under way with works to be completed in approximately 6-8 weeks time.
Primary works for the vehicle and pedestrian crossing have also commenced by Public Transport Authority's contractors.
