About the proposed route

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, traveling 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 and walking.

The proposed route for the safe active streets encompasses:

  • Links Road;
  • Collier Road south of Millington Street;
  • Millington Street east of Collier Road;
  • Hope Road north of Millington Street; and
  • Willcock Street

This route was chosen because it is already a defined, active link between Garden City Shopping Centre and Riseley Street Activity Centre. It also passes by Applecross Senior High School and Ardross Primary School, helping to create a safer, slow speed environment that encourages students to walk and cycle to school.
