Connect South

Connect South is a $7.5 million major project to enhance and invigorate the Mends Street precinct and foreshore area by creating a positive environment, both economically and socially.

Connect South includes Node 1: Mends Street as identified in the South Perth Foreshore Management Plan 2015.

The vision for Node 1: Mends Street is to create:

  • An active piazza and promenade
  • An arrival place with day/night activities
  • A gateway for the Mends Street Precinct with connecting stories and interpretation of heritage, zoo and the river
  • An integrated transport node utilising the river to connect with the Mends Street Precinct and surrounding area

Connect South - Stage 1

Stage 1 of the Connect South project includes Mends Street between Mill Point Road and the South Perth Foreshore along with parts of the South Perth Esplanade. It will deliver a piazza on the South Perth Foreshore as well as streetscape and amenity improvements, landscaping upgrades and place activation activities.

The City is seeking community and stakeholder input to help inform the place design concept plan.
