Consultation has concluded

As part of long term planning for the City’s transport network, the City sought input from the community on the direction of future upgrades for Kalamunda Road between Abernethy Road and Roe Highway, High Wycombe.

Engagement Activities & Promotion

The community consultation element involved engagement with residents, business owners and other stakeholders via an online survey and community and business workshops, and preliminary constraints mapping and preliminary technical analysis of low impact and high impact options.

The survey received a total of 224 responses with good representation from local residents (91% of respondents) and businesses (9.8%). The majority of respondents reported living in High Wycombe (72.3%), Maida Vale (5.8%) or Kalamunda (4.9%) with the remainder living in suburbs outside the City of Kalamunda.

Sufficient responses were received from the engagement, to confirm that the City should proceed with a ‘low capacity’ main street scenario for the future function of Kalamunda Road.

Outcome

At the 23 July 2019 Ordinary Council Meeting, Council resolved to endorse Kalamunda Road (between Roe Highway and Abernethy Road) becoming a Lower Capacity Local Road and to proceed with Stage 2 of the Kalamunda Road Functional Review and Upgrade project (Roe Highway to Abernethy Road) on the basis of the Lower Capacity option with budget allocation approved in the 2019/2020 Budget.

The final report for Kalamunda Road (Abernethy to Roe) was presented to the 24 March 2020 Ordinary Council Meeting. Council resolved to:

ENDORSE the draft Kalamunda Road Functional Review and Upgrade Plan as shown in Attachments 1 to 5 to this report for advertising to the community.

    The City of Kalamunda is asking for community feedback on the section of Kalamunda Road between Abernethy Road and Roe Highway in High Wycombe.

    The City has established a survey to help capture community feedback. The survey is accessible online at engage.kalamunda.wa.gov.au or in hard copy at City of Kalamunda Libraries or their Administration Centre at 2 Railway Road, Kalamunda.
