A REPORT outlining the City of Subiaco’s four-year infrastructure plan showed some City road improvements were off schedule.

The City will vote at Tuesday’s council meeting to receive the outcomes of the Corporate Business Plan 2018/21 Progress report.

According to the report, most projects, including the Subiaco Library refurbishment and City administration centre redevelopment, are progressing well and are expected to be delivered on schedule.

However, some are off schedule, including construction of the Hay Street and Roberts Road two-way road conversions, set to align with the Subiaco East Redevelopment project.

In May, an $8 million funding request to assist with the development was sent by the City to the MRA.

“Discussions are still under way to establish if the project will progress, and the project is subject to funding by the State Government,” chief executive Rochelle Lavery said.

Another project not progressing well is the Rokeby Road South Streetscape Master Plan.

The project involves an intersection upgrade between Hamersley Road and Heytesbury Road, and resurfacing between Bagot and Thomas roads.
