High Street Upgrade

Closed 25 Oct 2018

Opened 19 Oct 2018


Main Roads WA is proposing to conduct works to upgrade approximately 1.5 kilometre (km) of High Street in the City of Fremantle, Western Australia. The upgrade from Stirling Highway to Carrington Street to a four lane dual carriageway is aimed at improving road safety.


The works would require a total disturbance of approximately 20.1 hectares (ha), including 1.8 ha of the Fremantle Public Golf Course, Royal Fremantle Golf Club (Class A reserve) and 0.1 ha of the Fremantle Environmental Resource Network property (Class C reserve). Up to 0.67 ha black cockatoo foraging habitat, including 16 potential future breeding trees are proposed to be cleared.

Why We Are Consulting

At this initial stage of the EIA process, comment is simply sought on whether or not the EPA should assess a proposal and, if so, what level of assessment is considered appropriate.

What Happens Next

Following the seven day public comment period and consideration of any comments received, the EPA will decide whether or not this proposal requires environmental impact assessment and, if so, what level of assessment will be applied.

The EPA's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
