A project aimed at transforming the main street and town centre of Roebourne is one step closer after the City of Karratha awarded the tender for the first stage of work.

The Artisan Co was awarded the tender at the March 25 ordinary council meeting, which will see various upgrades along the Queen, Withnell, Padbury and Wellard streets intersections, and infill between Withnell and Wellard streets.

City of Karratha mayor Daniel Scott said he was pleased to award the construction tender and looked forward to the commencement of on-ground works.

“The design for this project has been informed by the Roebourne community and we will continue to consult with locals during the subsequent stages,” he said.

“We will continue to work with stakeholders and the community to make sure they are up to date with the progress of the streetscape master plan.”

Cr Scott said the initial works were part of an overarching objective of revitalising the town centre’s streetscape.

“Council’s vision for this project is to strengthen links to existing natural assets such as the Ngurin, enhance amenities as well as encourage cultural expression in the town site,” he said.

In June 2022, the council endorsed the proposed penultimate design and approach to implement the streetscape master plan as a staged delivery over multiple years.
