New facelift for Market Street

FREMANTLE council plans to transform Market Street, opening the strip to cafes and providing a plaza-like experience.

The council will work with building owners to spruce up facades, as it has done along South Terrace, and aims to replace bins and parking lots at the back of buildings with alfresco nooks. Traffic will be slowed to ensure the street becomes a “shared” space for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. “This is the result of decades of investigation and money put aside,” says Cr Rachel Pemberton. “It’s still a concept at this stage but we are really keen. It’s a crucial part of our development plan that will help to connect the cappuccino strip with the rest of the city.”
