GPP & WGVP … Notes of Joint community meeting …3/4/18

by kpaterson on 9 June, 2018

Good morning all

Gibson Park and White Gum Valley precincts held a joint community meeting on April 3rd to discuss the current proposal for the upgrade of the High Street / Stirling Highway intersection.

The purpose of this meeting was to capture feedback from residents on things we want to see addressed in the final design of the intersection.

Attached for your information and use are:

  1. Shane’s presentation on the background to the High Street upgrade and a summary of some of the issues that need to be addressed; and
  2. Notes of your community questions and feedback captured at the meeting.

The notes from the meeting have been provided to Main Roads WA, and to our local elected representatives (City, State and Federal) to advance on behalf of our community.

I apologise for not getting these notes to you sooner, but I’ve been travelling for the past two weeks and only returned home yesterday.


Main Roads has just announced a public consultation process on this project that will run until the end of May 2018. It involves:

  • an online survey concerning the draft concept plan (go to the Main Roads website noted below);
  • a display with feedback forms at the City of Fremantle Library from Monday, 7 May; and
  • drop-in sessions where you can speak to project team members at Stackwood, 10 Stack Street, Fremantle, on (1) Monday, 30 April, 4pm to 7pm and (2) Thursday, 10 May, 3pm to 6pm.

We will also try to organise a joint Gibson Park/White Gum Valley precinct’s meeting with Main Roads during the consultation period.

Find out more and comment on the Main Roads website:

High Street Upgrade –

High Street Upgrade – Stirling Highway to Carrington Street. The upgrade of High Street from Stirling Highway to Carrington Street is designed to improve safety, freight efficiency and the general flow of traffic for all road users travelling into and out of Fremantle.

The upgrade of the High Street/Stirling Hwy intersection and associated road works will have a significant impact on our neighbourhood. It would be good (an understatement) if we could make that impact as positive as is possible. For this reason, if you have any concerns or ideas about the the draft concept plan that you make them known during the consultation process.

Kind regards

Ron Kawalilak

Gibson Park Precinct Committee
