Mill Street improvement works head into the final straight

The ongoing public realm improvement works to create a ‘Cultural Quarter’ in Perth’s Mill Street are heading into the final straight as the phase 2 works are due to come to an end this month.

The final phase of the work will see Mill Street closed at Kinnoull Street to allow work to be carried out.  There will be a full closure on Monday October 16 and Friday October 20 to allow for resurfacing works, and a partial closure from Tuesday October 17 to Thursday October 19.

A diversion will be in place, with access maintained to the car park adjacent to Marks & Spencer. To access the car park on those days, drivers should take access from the George Street end of Mill Street.  Delivery access for businesses will be maintained throughout this phase of the works.

To allow this work to be carried out safely, a temporary road closure is required

Pedestrian access to Mill Street will be maintained throughout the works.

The arrangements for the works have been the subject of prior discussions with neighbouring businesses. Contractors Kilmac Construction will endeavour to keep noise and disruption to a minimum however some disruption should be anticipated while the works are ongoing, and the Council regrets any inconvenience which may arise as a result.
