Notification of Path Construction along Butcher Road and Palmer Crescent

The City is constructing a new shared path along Butcher Road and Palmer Crescent. The path starts at Newburn Road, runs along the west side of Butcher, and then the north side of Palmer to join to the recently constructed shared path on Mack Place.

The new shared path was originally identified in the City’s Bicycle Plan and are part funded under the Department of Transport’s Western Australia Bicycle Network (WABN) grants program. The new red asphalt shared path will be 3.0 metres wide and will connect students, residents and workers to the new train station.

Specific works to be undertaken this financial year include:

  • Removing the existing kerb and around 1.7 metres of verge on the west side of Butcher and north side of Palmer.
  • Constructing a new red asphalt shared path 3.0 metres wide with a new kerb, leaving the existing road at 6.0 metres wide (currently 7.4 metres).
  • A completion of the shared path from the end of Mack Place to Maida Vale Road.
  • Bright, colourful decorative paintings at road crossings.

The reason for reducing the road width is to reduce the impact to residents along these roads, while leaving a width that meets current standards. All driveways and reticulation that are affected by the work will be repaired and reinstated.

The decorative paintings will look like those already applied at Walker Crescent, Maclarty Way and Kiandra Way. The art for these was created by a local artist, after a series of school workshops in 2019.

Works are expected to take place in February and March 2021 and will be undertaken during business hours (7:00am to 7:00pm). There will be further notice to affected residents before the work starts, to arrange for driveway access and to set out and reinstate reticulation.
