CITY of Fremantle is warning locals to expect some traffic disruptions, noise and dust when the Stan Reilly Centre is demolished this month.
Fencing has gone up around the site in anticipation of demolition beginning later this month, with the knock down expected to take up to six weeks.
The $1 million project will deliver approximately 155 new parking bays to the city centre early next year.
“These new bays will be a welcome and convenient addition to the approximately 5000 city centre parking bays already available,” Fremantle mayor Brad Pettitt said.
“This project will take an under-utilised site and turn it into a valuable asset for the community while we undertake more detailed planning of the redevelopment of Fremantle Oval, which will also include more public parking.”
A specialist contractor will remove all the asbestos from the site before demolition begins.
Work will be carried out from 8am to 5pm Monday to Friday with carpark 16 next to the Fremantle Oval entrance to be closed on weekdays.
