Projects and Works

Introduction

The Capital Works Program has been developed to meet anticipated community infrastructure needs and the future development of the Town to align with the strategic plan, driven by population growth, requirements of the community and asset management.  These works include footpath replacement, traffic management treatments and road re-sheeting works among other minor capital works.

Upcoming Projects

Ashton Avenue - Replacement of bridge

Main Roads are preparing to replace Ashton Avenue bridge in 2018 and over the next few weeks you may notice some pre-construction activity by Western Power and the Public Transport Authority.

Detours will be in place for road users, with pedestrian access maintained. Some single lane closures on the bridge should also be expected at times.


Ashton Avenue Communication Pole Replacement

In preparation for the works to replace the Ashton Avenue bridge, the Public Transport Authority (PTA) will be replacing the radio communications pole within the Ashton Avenue road and rail reserve.  Works will commence in January and will be completed by March 2018.  For more information about the works please visit the PTA website at www.pta.wa.gov.au, email projects@pta.wa.gov.au or call 13 62 13.

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.
