While the ninja warriors of Morley have been busy conquering the Russell Street Park obstacle course, the City has been working on bringing more improvements to the town centre. Solar up-lighting is being installed along the footpath at the Progress Street pocket park to help the area feel safer and more welcoming in the evening. Your feedback is welcome; please let us know if you feel it makes a difference.
The City has also provided funding for two more exciting public art projects to bring more colour and vibrancy to the Morley CBD. The first will be on the cylinder wall outside Bankwest and will celebrate the diverse cultures that make up the Morley community. Funding has also been approved for an impressive large-scale mural on the 75 metre brick wall facing the Coventry Village carpark. I would like to thank local community group Morley Momentum who have worked tirelessly on both of these projects.
Those who walk or cycle around Morley will be pleased to know that improvements will soon be made to the Walter Road and Wellington Road intersection. In consultation with Member for Morley Amber-Jade Sanderson, the City has been working with Main Roads WA on new crosswalks and signage that will help make the road safer for pedestrians.
