A Perth-based developer is proposing splitting Kippen Street in half, making one portion a one-way street, while the other half would remain a two-way street.

Kippen Street runs from Wilson Street at its east end to Joy Avenue on its west end, and developer Brent Brownlee would like to see the western half of the road made into a one-way street, with westbound traffic only onto Joy. The other half of Kippen would remain a two-way street.

Brownlee has a plan to build a 23-unit, three-storey apartment building on the southern edge of the intersection of Kippen and Joy. Speaking at Perth town council’s committee of the whole meeting on Tuesday, April 2, Marko Cekic, a land use planner with the McIntosh Perry Limited engineering firm, employed by Brownlee, said that making the changes to the road would be “crucial” to make this feasible.
