Wheelchair Access Path on Brook Street Supports Residents with Disabilities, Promoting Inclusivity and Connection

The Town of Bassendean have recently completed construction of an improved path on Brook Street, providing greater accessibility for residents with disabilities. The project was suggested by a local physiotherapist who works with residents on the street with spinal cord injuries. The path provides wheelchair access from a residential driveway on Brook Street to the wide footpath network on Guildford Road, which connects residents to the Hawaiian's Bassendean shopping centre and the Town centre.

Approved by Council in September, the project aligns with several of the Town's core priorities: “…establishing partnerships with the community that build capacity, connection and sense of belonging,” “treating people equitably with access to programs and services, regardless of advantage or ability,” and “supporting healthy lifestyles throughout our Town.”

The project's completion reaffirms the Town’s commitment to promoting equity, encouraging participation in community life, and fostering a supportive and inclusive environment.
