The Public Transport Authority will soon begin work to create a dedicated westbound bus priority lane along Cedric Street between George Street and the Stirling Train Station Mitchell Freeway and a signalised principal shared path crossing at Cedric Street, opposite the City of Stirling Council Chambers.
This will help provide a more reliable service to bus passengers, reduce road congestion and improve connectivity and safety for cyclists.
Starting in early 2017 the work will include:
- Widening Cedric Street between George Street and the Mitchell Freeway interchange lane to add full-time bus lane
- Constructing a signalised principal shared path crossing
- Conversion of Freeway on-ramp access from signalised to ‘give-way’
- New signage and line markings
It is anticipated that the works will take approximately 3 months to complete.
Westbound traffic on Cedric Street will be reduced to a single lane after 10am and the plan is to never fully close the road during construction.
It is anticipated that works will primarily take place between 10am and 7pm to minimise the impact on residents. There may be road impacts some and night works. Residents will be informed of these when details are confirmed.
Bus passenger impacts
There will be disruptions to Bus Stop number 23898 on Cedric Street, after George Street. We encourage you to plan ahead. Please visit www.transperth.wa.gov.au, sign up for free My ALERT email updates, or download the Transperth App for more information.
