Australia: New Street Names for Rous Head Reclaimed Land

New streets on reclaimed land at Rous Head will be named after a former Fremantle Port Authority general manager, an early container ship and a passenger ship that became a troop carrier during WWII.

The 27 hectares of land, reclaimed during the most recent Inner Harbour deepening, will be used for port-related purposes, mostly to support the container trade at North Quay. As well as a new truck marshalling area and truck stop, there will be container storage, quarantine service facilities and logistics operations.

In January this year, Fremantle Ports awarded a $13m contract to local civil and mining contractor Brierty Ltd to construct roads and install services on the site. The works include construction of a number of roads, including a public access road and cycle path along the new seawall, and construction of the new truck marshalling area.

The additional land provides an opportunity to create safer and more efficient traffic flow in the Rous Head area. The development will improve freight-handling efficiency, reduce truck congestion and improve road safety for trucks and light vehicles.
