This project was carried out for the City of Perth to convert Museum Street into a pedestrian friendly area. The works also included upgrades to the intersection with Aberdeen Street and Francis Street.

The project included:

  • Demolition of existing hard works, including:
    • Asphalt and pavement
    • Concrete kerbing
    • Brick paving
    • Drainage Infrastructure
  • Development and implementation of an extensive traffic management plan. This allowed full pedestrian access to the area, as well as vehicular access through Museum Street.
  • Liaising with the neighbouring businesses and all key stakeholders to reduce the Project’s impact on the daily operations of the community;
  • Installation of new drainage items including gully pits, man holes, reinforced concrete pipes and an ACO strip drain;
  • General earthworks including the construction of a limestone basecourse;
  • Installation of Stratavault tree cell structures. This project was the first project in Western Australia to utilise these materials;
  • Construction of new kerb lines, including granite, precast concrete and insitu concrete;
  • Construction of a 1,280m2 concrete footpath;
  • Profiling of existing asphalt
  • Construction of new asphalt wearing course on Francis Street, Aberdeen Street and Museum Street;
  • Installation of brick paving;
  • Transplanting of trees, including 10 No. mature London Plane trees; and
  • Procurement and installation of internally lit, hard wired glowing street furniture from Portugal (nominated supplier).

The project was completed whilst overcoming the difficulties of the site including: strict traffic management regulations and working near high pressure gas lines. The project was effectively managed without environmental or safety incident. All of the works were completed on time and within budget, to the satisfaction of all parties involved.
