Traffic Congestion – Sutherland and Railway Streets, West Perth Intersection
Cr McEvoy raised concerns regarding increased traffic congestion due to works located at the Sutherland and Railway Streets intersection. The Director Planning and Development advised that congestion may be due to temporary changes in signalling for works associated with the widening of the cycle way on Railway / Roe Streets, and that a report providing an update on these works would be presented at future Works and Urban Development Committee meeting.
The only work I'm aware of is part of the CBD Transport Plan, and the last I heard was:
Detailed design and construction of the recommended facility for Roe Street (scheduled from 2014/2015 to 2015/2016).
There currently isn't a 'cycle way' at this location, and as far as I'm aware it is a foot path, based on DoT's Bike Maps.
What is being built at Sutherland/Railway Streets?
