Forrest Place, Perth
Forrest Place, a square located in Perth’s CBD, has recently been redeveloped to become a safe and vibrant precinct for pedestrians. It comprises a permanent stage area, taxi and bus stands; enhanced lighting and improved street furniture.
Project designers faced the challenge of locating a heavily trafficked drainage system in a suspended slab overlying one of the city train lines. A compact system was therefore required to be safe enough for pedestrian foot traffic and strong enough for vehicular traffic.
