The City of Melville has received funding from the Department of Transport to create a series of safe active streets linking Garden City Shopping Centre and Riseley Street Activity Centre.

Safe active streets are local streets with few cars, travelling at low speeds that prioritise bicycling and enhance conditions for walking. They are an important, new part of Perth’s transport network offering safe and comfortable routes for people riding bikes.

For more information, including a concept design, a fly-through video showing what the streets may look like visually as well as detailed information on the various features of the proposed safe active streets, visit Melville Talks.

Community consultation open now

The City is seeking feedback from the community on the concept design for the proposed safe active streets, which will be deliberated alongside other safety and technical considerations and could influence aspects of the detailed design.

Have your say on Melville Talks, our community engagement platform, where you can find out more about the Department of Transport’s Safe Active Streets Program and provide feedback on the concept design by attaching comments to a series of interactive street maps, showing both the route and its engineering features.

You can also register to attend a workshop at the City to find out what you told us, and to ask questions of the experts involved in the project.
