The Hilton town centre has become a bit more colourful and traffic changes hopefully will make it safer as well.

It looks quite cute, although the low fence-like structures could have been at least a metre high.

The no right turn out of Paget Street onto South Street was ignored already as the tall photo I took this morning shows.

FINALLY SAFER HILTON TOWN CENTRE

Hilton

 

The Hilton town centre in Fremantle will finally get a much-needed upgrade to make the area safer for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.

The plans aims to make the section of South Street which runs through the Hilton shopping area feel more like a traditional town centre by slowing traffic and creating a safe and welcoming environment.

Preventing cars from turning right out of Paget Street and Victor Street onto South Street will also address serious safety issues at those intersections where many accidents have occurred in the past.

That stretch of South Street, just east of Carrington Road, is very dangerous and the local community has been calling for something to be done to improve safety for a long time.

In the past five years there have been 20 crashes involving cars turning right into South Street and a lot of near misses for people using the pedestrian crossing.

These improvements will make the area a lot safer, while also creating a more appealing community space.

The improvements will include enhanced signage and lighting to make drivers more aware of the pedestrian crossing on South Street, new ramps at Paget Street and Victor Street to make it easier for people with prams and wheelchairs, a different colour asphalt roadway to delineate Hilton town centre, and new landscaping and street furniture.

The project is being funded through $250,000 from the state government’s Local Projects, Local Jobs program and $50,000 from the City of Fremantle.

Work is planned to start in April and estimated to be finalised by July next year.

I have been living in Hilton for ten days so of course I had to try out the LOCAL CAFE at Paget street. The Espresso I had yesterday was great and the service very friendly Freo.

My mate Ryan is head chef at the Local and the lucky bastard is the partner of gorgeous graffiti artist Lady Bananas, who painted the stunning mural.

Why not commission Lady B to beautify your cafe/restaurant/shop front? Contact her via Facebook!

And go try Ryan’s cooking at the LOCAL. He’s not just a handsome face.
