Cecil Avenue East

Cecil Avenue East is now open, which is part of the next phase of the Canning City Centre Regeneration Program – a 10-year, $76 million program that aims to turn the area into Perth’s Southern CBD and realise its potential as a Strategic Metropolitan Centre in Perth.

The key driver and vision for a rejuvenated Cecil Avenue is to create an entry to the heart of the City Centre. The first stage, Cecil Avenue West was completed in December 2019.
The second stage, Cecil Avenue East, will continue the vision of Cecil Ave West but will commence at Sevenoaks Street to 150 metres past Lake Street. Works include:

  • Dedicated bus lanes which can also be used by cyclists and taxis
  • Wider footpaths for a pedestrian-friendly street
  • Big trees to increase tree canopy on Cecil Avenue
  • Rain gardens and points of interest for the public to enjoy
  • Smart infrastructure including technology for augmented reality, free Wi-Fi, CCTV, public mobile charging stations and interactive street and furniture lighting.
  • Also on Cecil Avenue East a Fremantle artist has installed the lifecycle of a frog. The frog glows in the dark as well.
  • One of the key features added to Cecil Avenue is the Canning customised filigree lighting. The City engaged Aboriginal artist Darryl Bellotti to develop a Canning narrative.
