Upcoming Projects 

Graylands Road - Road Rehabilitation and Shared Path Project

Works on the road rehabilitation and shared path on the eastern verge of Graylands Road are scheduled to commence on Monday 26 March 2018. The goal is to complete the works before Friday 27 April 2018, weather and contractor availability permitting. 

Works are expected to occur during typical working house (between 7am and 5pm) on weekdays. 

Access to Graylands Road will be limited during construction, with detours in place to allow vehicles move around the site safely and to ensure the safety of the Town's staff, contractors and the public. 

While it is inevitable that works of this nature will cause some inconvenience to those living and working in this area, every effort will be made to ensure that this is kept to a minimum.

Will be closed to all traffic from Lemnos Street to Underwood Avenue from 9 April for up to four weeks for road construction and resurfacing works.
 
Detours will be in place and traffic controllers will provide assistance.

Underground Power Project

The undergrounding of power to the final pocket of the Town of Claremont was supported by more than 80% of survey respondents and, as such, the project will commence within the 2017-18 financial year.

Over the coming months, the Town will work with Western Power to develop a scope of works for the project, which is likely to then proceed early in 2018.
