Trial Pedestrian Street begins

The first phase will trial the space as a pedestrian only area and will last for 16 days from Saturday 1 October 2022 to Sunday 16 October 2022. It will test if the space could function as a public plaza or as a flexible pedestrian space that is open on occasions (similar to how Leederville Village Square functions for events).

The temporary space will include seating, picnic tables, shade, lighting, greenery and playful elements. The space will host a program of all-ages free activities and small-scale events delivered by local groups in partnership with the City.

The trial area on Grosvenor Road will be closed to vehicles during this phase.

Trial Shared Street Begins

The second phase will trial the space as a shared street and will last for four weeks from Monday 17 October 2022 to Monday 14 November. It will test if the space could be shared by all users with vehicles moving slowly through and pedestrians being able to walk comfortably throughout. 

The area will include a ‘comfort zone’ for people with picnic tables, shade and other items such as greenery and lighting will remain in place. 

Vehicles may access the road via Beaufort Street and move slowly through the space within the ‘shared zone’. Three 15-minute street parking bays will remain available and help test what impacts this may have on the usability of the space. 

To provide space for pedestrian amenities, the northern lane will be closed and vehicles would not be permitted to access the space from the west-end of Grosvenor Road to turn left onto Beaufort Street.
