A NEW shared space in the Leederville town centre could be ready in time for the Leedypalooza in January.
Vincent council’s planning to raise the road on Newcastle Street, just in front of Bill’s (formerly the Leederville Hotel) to match the footpath, with staffers reporting that will make it more “pedestrian-friendly” by flagging its dual-use to motorists.
They estimate it’ll cost $275,000 to build it.
They’d already put aside $115,000 in the last budget, but the city recently switched to a cheaper recycling contractor and they’re saving about $300,000 a year, so they’ve got extra cash to allocate now.
