High Wycombe noise / amenity walls
The installation of noise / amenity walls in High Wycombe is making progress after Gateway WA was commissioned by the State Government earlier this year to carry out the work.
Approximately 2.6 kilometres of noise / amenity walls along the western side of Roe Highway in the High Wycombe area will be constructed to reduce traffic noise and provide privacy screening for local residents.
The project team has been putting panels in place between Maida Vale and Kalamunda Roads for 800 metres and south of Kalamunda Road for 200 metres.
Steel posts for the noise / amenity walls are being installed north of Kalamunda Road. This will be followed by the placement of concrete panels between the posts to form the noise / amenity walls.
Once in position, the highway side of all panels will be coated with clear anti-graffiti paint.
When finished, the noise / amenity walls will stretch from just north of Poison Gully in the south to Buttercup Crescent in the north, along the western side of Roe Highway.
This additional package of work in High Wycombe is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
