The city’s $3.3 million investment in the revitalisation of the Subiaco Town Centre will start later this month, with the project scheduled for completion in November this year.

The scope of works includes:
  • new multi-use light and banner poles
  • raising a number of car bays to encourage alfresco dining
  • road resurfacing
  • upgrades to median strips including removal of sections of the median and new kerbing where appropriate
  • street furniture, bollards and planter boxes.
Where possible, works will be conducted at night. The city will be liaising with local business owners and residents in order to minimise disruption.
