Upgrades to a popular part of Bunbury’s city centre will go ahead, expanding on recent transformation works in the area.

A new-look Prinsep Street has been supported by local businesses and retailers in the area with upgrades set to include improved alfresco areas and seating, lighting, a designated pedestrian crossing and new street trees and landscaping.

The project will complement the recently completed works to upgrade the Prinsep and Haley streets, and Carmody Place roundabout and surrounding area. This improved area has received a positive response from businesses, community members and visitors.

The latest stage will see improvements between the upgraded intersection and Victoria Street to the west with the project aiming to create a safe, functional and vibrant streetscape as part of the City’s work to beautify CBD streets through its City Centre Action Plan. The planting of 14 new trees is also in line with the City’s Greening Plan target to increase canopy cover by 10 per cent by 2030.

The City undertook extensive targeted consultation with business and property owners in the area, resulting in an exciting and supported design. The City also engaged its Co-Design Access Panel which supports the design. Consultation will continue throughout the project.

It is expected to cost about $1.15 million for detailed design and construction with Bunbury City Council set to consider funding this across both the 2024-25 and 2025-26 financial years.

The City will provide more updates as the project progresses.
