  • In 2018, City of Fremantle (CoF) set up a project team to develop a Master Plan for Hampton Road to address safety for pedestrians, cyclists and local residents.
  • The Master Plan, which covers all of Hampton Road from Douro Road in the south to the High Street in the north, was first released in April 2019.
  • If realised, these changes will result in substantial improvements to Hampton Road, including:
    • a 50% increase in pedestrian crossing points (from 24 to 36)
    • wider mid-road pedestrian refuges (of at least 2 metres) to accommodate prams and bikes
    • conversion of on-road painted bike lanes to fully segregated, protected bike lanes (a first for Fremantle!) providing safe cycling for all 
    • improved landscaping – plants, lighting, seating
    • distinctive signage and place-making eg in the heritage area near the prison
    • substantial improvements to amenity of Hampton Town Centre (the shops and businesses between South St and Wray Ave)
    • intersection improvements to allow safer east-west crossings for all road users but especially pedestrians.

How will changes proposed under the Master Plan become reality?

  • CoF elected members need to support funding for identified projects.
  • Budget discussions are in progress NOW for next year’s (2019/2020) Budget.
  • CoF has identified 2 areas where the changes outlined in the Master Plan could become a reality in 2019/2020 :
    • the section of Hampton and Ord between Knutsford and High St which is due for re-surfacing
    • the section between South St and Wray Ave (Hampton Town Centre) where major intersection upgrades are planned for Hampton and South St
  • If you want to see change, you need to :
  • If funding is not allocated in this years Budget then this opportunity will be lost and may not be re-visited for another 10 years or more.

Why are changes to Hampton Road needed?

  • Hampton and Ord is a dangerous and costly barrier through the heart of Fremantle.
  • It has become the de-facto Fremantle Eastern Bypass, carrying an enormous amount of traffic including heavy vehicles.
  • This is not appropriate for a residential street with schools, local shops and homes.
  • It is dangerous and costly with 13 BLACK SPOT intersections, costing the community nearly $13.5 million over 5 years. (More data on this on on our Issues page.)
