A short section of the Perth to Fremantle Principle Shared Path (PSP) between Thomas Street and Campbell Street, West Perth will be temporarily closed between 9am and 4pm for approximately five days commencing 14 July 2008.
The closure is required to allow tilt-up concrete panels to be erected on a work site abutting the PSP near City West Station.
Falling concrete tilt-up concrete panels have caused several deaths on Western Australian work sites and as a result pedestrians and cyclists will not be allowed within the potential drop zone while lifting work is underway.
The PSP will be open during peak hours to minimise disturbance to commuters, but between 9am and 4pm pedestrians and cyclists will be asked to detour via the local path and road network on surrounding streets.
A photo/map of the area impacted can be found on the Department for Planning and Infrastructure website.
