Haley St, Prinsep St and Carmody Place Revitalisation

Project Overview

Works to create a more attractive and welcoming area at a popular entry point into Bunbury’s CBD will start soon.

Starting in September, the intersection and roundabout connecting Haley Street, Prinsep Street and Carmody Place will undergo a facelift.

What's happening?

The project, commencing in Spring 2022 will provide new streetscape and road layout to enhance the appeal of the area, make it safer for the community and provide better access to the nearby businesses and shopping precinct.  

Approximately 100 new street trees will be planted during the project, creating a green avenue of trees combined with an understory of Australian plant species supported by a water sensitive urban design.

There will also be new paving and new street furniture added in key locations.  

The nature of the work will mean disruptions in the area so we advise the community to expect delays and seek an alternative route where possible. Traffic management will be in place with intermittent road closures.

The initial works are timed to be completed prior to the busy Christmas trading period, lessening the impact on local businesses.

City staff will be managing the project with the support of local sub-contractors.

The City have been visiting local businesses this month (August 2022) to update and advise them of the works schedule.

Stay tuned for updates on this exciting project!
