Milligan Street precinct works

The first stage of the transformation of Milligan Street precinct, part of the Perth City Link project, is complete.

The works included the Milligan Street road extension which provides vehicle access into the precinct and Perth Arena underground car park.

Two new development sites have also been created, with one earmarked for a new hotel which will provide much-needed short stay accommodation in the city.

Services including water, sewer, power and gas have also been upgraded. The pedestrian ‘land bridge’ that will connect to Roe Street is partially completed, with the remainder to be completed in 2015.

The land bridge is comprised of a new terraced landscaped area which features new public artworks by local artist Jon Tarry in the form of polished steel ‘clouds’ which are visible from Wellington and Roe streets.
