Consultation has concluded

Comments close 3rd December 2020 @ 5pm

Outcome

At this stage, it is not certain that WABN funding for construction will be available. As a result, the DCP has been amended for Berkshire Road to remove the shared path item and instead include the completion and necessary upgrades to the existing 2m wide footpath on the northern side of Berkshire Road as the lowest cost / certainty item to facilitate pedestrian movements from the developments of the lots.

A clearance assessment has also been undertaken to all overhead services that cross Berkshire Road (Western Power consumer lines) to determine safe clearance requirements for Restricted Access Vehicle routes. This assessment noted that four overhead consumer lines are required to be under-grounded which is anticipated result in an estimated cost of $60,000 ($71,320 including allowances and charges).




Background

The City of Kalamunda is designing a new shared path for the south side of Berkshire Road, and the east side of Dundas Road. This path will connect residents and workers starting from the existing paths by Roe Highway and linking to the new High Wycombe Train Station.

The new red asphalt shared path will be 3.0 metres wide as per the example picture provided. The work is proposed to take place in 2021-22 financial year, during business hours (7:00am to 7:00pm).

The new shared path was originally identified in the City’s Bicycle Plan and is part funded under the Department of Transport’s Western Australia Bicycle Network (WABN) grants program.

Note: This path is in addition to the pedestrian path being provided on the north side of Berkshire Road as part of the Forrestfield Industrial Area Development Contribution Scheme.
