New Refuge for High Wycombe Pedestrians

Published on 1 April 2019

The City of Kalamunda has constructed a new pedestrian refuge on Kalamunda Road, between Abernethy Road and Stirling Crescent in High Wycombe. The works will conclude with new line-marking, which is scheduled to take place in April.

The $35,000 project involved localised road widening and construction of a refuge island, pram ramps and new footpath to the nearby bus stop.

Mayor John Giardina said, “A lot of residents from the nearby Hillview Lifestyle Village cross this road on a daily basis to get to the bus stop. 

Kalamunda Road is very busy at this location and there was a clear need for a safer means of crossing the road.”

The upgrades form part of a significant capital works program for 2019, with over 20 projects currently scheduled for completion this year.
