*Abnormal works
Abnormal works are one off activities that require significant truck movements, obstructions to movement such as road closures and detours or works outside of the normal working hours. These works are subject to a separate approval process and are considered on an individual basis. Approvals may include the need to notify residents of the temporary change and in the case of works outside of normal working hours require subsequent approvals from the City’s Environmental Health Team and CEO.
**General Approvals
General approvals are granted to construction sites and long-term activities in the Station Precinct for daily activities such as general truck movements for deliveries and minor concrete pours. These works are only to be undertaken during normal working hours (7am – 7pm Monday -Saturday) and do not include works that will have a significant impact on access through/past the site area. General works are subject to a monthly approval process. 

Works on South Perth Esplanade

The works along South Perth Esplanade at the junction with Mends Street are part of the City's Connect South project. The City understands that these works may be disruptive and we thank the community and all stakeholders for their understanding and cooperation during the construction works of this important revitalisation project.

Contractor MG Group will ensure the site is kept secure and that dust and noise is minimised during construction.

Connect South Project background

The first stage of the project will create a vibrant and accessible entry point to Mends Street, the Perth Zoo and greater South Perth. Works will include the development of an active pedestrian-friendly piazza on the Mends Street Foreshore and minor upgrades to the northern area of Mends Street, between Mill Point Road and South Perth Esplanade.  

Construction is anticipated to be completed in November 2019 at an estimated total project cost of $7.5 million with $2.5 million from Federal Government National Stronger Regions funding and $5 million from the City of South Perth.
