Lake Street Extension 

As you will be aware the Canning City Centre Regeneration Program is a 10 year, $76 million program that aims to create Canning as Perth’s southern CBD. Part of that plan to revitalise the Canning City Centre and realise its potential as a Strategic Metropolitan Centre in Perth. The focus is to create a City Centre that is vibrant and offers a range of activities and options to its users.

As part of achieving the future vision for the Canning City Centre, the City worked closely with the Development WA to enable important new secondary roads to be developed in line with the WAPC approved Activity Centre Plan.  

In 2020 and early 2021 key State government agencies approved the City’s request as part of land negotiations on Ceil Avenue East, to include the important Lake Street Extension. This allows the City to deliver a new connecting road from Cecil Avenue to Wharf Street. This will provide a desirable and direct link between Cannington Leisureplex and Cecil Avenue and further promote the viability and accessibility of the Leisureplex with direct access to the heart of the city centre and Carousel. 

The Lake Street Extension project is due to start Mid 2022 and the works will take up approximately 4 months Any temporary road closures will be controlled under traffic management.  All contractors will be made aware of the safety issues of pedestrians given there are three schools adjoining the site of the new roads.

Prior to construction works commencing Mid 2022, approximately 30 trees will be removed 2 May 2022. These will be replaced by more than 90 native trees as part of the project.
