Streetscape works set to begin this month near Mary Carroll Park and Gosnells Primary School will make the area more pedestrian friendly.

The works along Hicks Street and May Street, Gosnells, will include improved pedestrian crossings, improved paths, the installation of street trees and new on-street parking.

Street tree planting will also take place in the area bound by Hicks, Percy, Clara and Verna streets, including Muriel Street.

City of Gosnells Mayor Olwen Searle said the works were part of the Mary Carroll Park Vision Plan, enhancing the park as an outstanding recreational asset with a unique natural environment and community significance.

“These works will not only improve pedestrian safety for residents, school students and parents, they will also recognise the significance of Mary Carroll Park in our community by making the entrances more welcoming,” she said.

With works set to continue until the end of the year, drivers should be mindful of the road conditions, pedestrians and road workers.
