Notices and Tenders

A tentative date of Monday 15 March has been set for the new one-way road through the Festival Precinct to open, allowing vehicle access from Bussell Highway through Fearn Avenue. Access through the one-way street was temporarily deferred until retractable bollards arrived, which were delayed due to global supply chain issues.

A speed limit of 10 kilometres an hour will apply through this shared use area. The Festival Precinct was designed as a shared use space as part of the Margaret River Main Street Makeover. Drivers are asked to keep to the speed limit.  Pedestrians are asked to give way to cars in this area as the town gets used to the one-way street.
