The proposed Ghostgum Ave and Armadale Rd intersection

As many of you have already received information in your letterbox regarding the next major phase to the Armadale Road to North Lake Road Bridge Project. Check the Mainroad website for more project details.

This post will highlight the construction that will impact residents in Calleya Estate and surrounding Treeby. Mainly the Ghostgum Ave entrance to Armadale Road.

This 3-staged construction will commence in early September 2020 and aims to mid-2021. A major diversion is required to assist the widening of Armadale Road. As a result, the intersection will be converted to left-turn access only during the construction phase.

Ghostgum Avenue traffic intending to travel westbound on Armadale Road will be required to turn left at Armadale Road and follow the detour to the Liddelow Road roundabout then turn back onto Armadale Road, adding an extra 2 km, or approximately four minutes to travel times.

Armadale Road westbound traffic intending to travel northbound on Ghostgum Avenue will be required to continue travelling west on Armadale Road to the temporary roundabout at Tapper Road and Verde Drive (in operation from mid-August), then turn back onto Armadale Road. This will add an extra 1.5 km, or approximately three minutes to travel times.

Right turning movements between Armadale Road and Ghostgum Avenue will be prohibited, as they would require road users to cross an active construction site and oncoming traffic, without protection from traffic signals. This would create a potentially hazardous situation for road users and construction workers in the area. This duration of the right turn closure is necessary for the significant works to be safely undertaken in a heavily constrained area with live power, gas and water services.

Signed detours will be in place throughout each stage of the works. A detour map can be found below. To minimise disturbance to residents, we aim to keep construction-related noise to a minimum and will actively monitor these impacts throughout.

Upon completion, an additional lane will be added to the Armadale Road and Ghostgum Avenue intersection in each direction to improve capacity and support ongoing residential development in Treeby.

If you have any questions about these works or wish to find out more about the Armadale Road to North Lake Road Bridge Project, please phone 138 138, email enquiries@mainroads.wa.gov.au or visit https://project.mainroads.wa.gov.au/home/armadaleroadbridge/Pages/default.aspx

Let's talk about a popular issue here in Calleya estate and that is the mobile coverage ๐Ÿ“ถ from all the telecom providers.

You may have come across many Facebook posts on our Calleya Estate, Treeby community group or on our  TCA Facebook page highlighting the grievances of having low to no phone signals in this estate. 

This issue existed since the first development of Calleya; and as population density increases the signals deteriorate drastically. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ We, the TCA, had been raising this issue with the Cockburn council and the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman (TIO) yearly in hope that a solution can be implemented.

In the last Wednesday general meeting, on 12th August 2020 at Mooba Cafe, we had the pleasure of having Mr. Yaz Mubarakai joining us and sharing some key developments and community pain-points he is addressing in 2020. One specific highlight is that he proactively is taking action to get this Mobile Coverage issue resolved. He acknowledged that Treeby and our surrounding community are growing at a record pace and a good telecommunication infrastructure needs to be in place for all the residents.

In order to do that, he is collecting feedbacks and experiences from the residents in these communities. The more he can collect, the strong the case he can build to get a tower erected or a small-cell placed in our surrounding area.

So please, let's help to make Calleya mobile coverage possible by putting your feedback in the survey link below:

https://jandakot.walabor.org.au/community/mobile-coverage-issues-in-jandakot/

 

This is a quick update to inform the resident that part of Solomon Road parallel to Calleya Estate had been opened which allowed residents to come into the estate via Greensand Promanade (new entry) and Dollier Street (existing entry). See map above for the green coloured line.

However, it also appears that they had temporarily closed the minor stretch of Solomon Road between Dollier Street and Cutler Road โš ๏ธ. See map above for the red coloured line. Making it into a 1-lane street, causing unnecessary jams during normal hours.

TCA has not received any information regarding this closure and still waiting to hear back from the council. We do wish that this closure is only temporary and fast. Will post another update as we know more!

So please plan your routes carefully.

If you wish to go Kwinana Freeway or Northbound, please detour using Jandakot Road and Berrigan Drive. If you are heading Southbound, going via Clementine Boulevard is the less jam option at the moment.

Take care and drive safe ๐Ÿš—!

It is that time of the year again where we would like to say thank you for your continuous support for Treeby Community Association.

Opal Aged Care - Treeby Parklands - Opening Late 2020

Stockland and TCA have been receiving questions regarding the construction opposite to the dog park on Abelia Road.

This is the new Opal Aged Care facility.

Opal Aged Careโ€™s new home, Treeby Parklands Care Community, is progressing well with construction expected to reach completion in September 2020. Opal Aged Care offers high-quality clinical care, social and recreational programs, and community connections in a friendly and inviting atmosphere for residents and their families. The Opal care home will also include a cafรฉ and physio rehab clinic which will be open to the wider Calleya/Treeby Community.

Please contact Rita Gatenby for more information on PH 0429 954 886 or rita.gatenby@opalagedcare.com.au

Today Treeby Community Association executive team had a bi-monthly meeting in our community garden. Many topics are on the table for discussion, and there is one that I would like to share with all of you (residents of Treeby) here.

As a few of you probably read on our WhatsApp group or our Treeby Crime Watch FB group that there have been a few thefts around the area, as well as 4WD intrusion near Ghostgum roundabout. CoSafe and Police were informed of these activities and subsequently, they are logged.

In the last Neighbourhood Watch meeting the statistics for April 2020 are released and here is Treeby.

As you can see there is a jump between the incidents in February 2020 and April 2020. This is due to multiple factors such as COVID-19 lockdown, unemployment, and being a new construction area are easy targets.

Regardless of the result, I have to applause our community for staying vigilant and keeping eyes around our estate. There are many instances where our community came together and deter suspicious activities. By working together we can make our estate safer for everyone!

Thank you all. We hope the number will drop back down in our next meeting.

We urge you to report any incidents or suspicious activities to the following organisations. Just remember that CrimeStoppers is an intelligence database that sends information out to relevant departments to action. When calling the police or CrimeStoppers, call CoSafe as well as often they are closer to the incident than the police.

000 (Emergency) ๐Ÿ†˜

  • Emergencies that are life-threatening
  • For a crime that is being committed or has just been committed (includes fire and medical emergencies).

131444 (Police) ๐Ÿ‘ฎ

  • Non-urgent situations that require police attendance
  • E.g. car theft, anti-social behaviour (ASB), property related incidents, burglary
  • For crimes that have occurred.

1300 333 000 (CrimeStoppers) ๐Ÿš“

  • Non-urgent situations where immediate attendance is not required
  • E.g. criminal activity or suspicious behaviour
  • You can remain anonymous (as you are not reporting to the police directly)
  • Information can be current or from the past.

1300 26 72 33 (CoSafe) ๐Ÿš”

  • Non-urgent situations where immediate police attendance is not required
  • E.g. ASB, vandalism, graffiti, suspicious behaviour (this will be reported to CrimeStoppers), noise complaints
  • CoSafe responds to calls within 15 minutes.

Please help us to keep Treeby safe. No matter how trivial you think your information is, it might be the missing link for the police. ๐Ÿšจ

Lastly, if you are interested in comparing our suburb with the rest of City of Cockburn, you can find the NHW - Monthly CoSafe Report - April 2020 here.

 

 

The City has been working with a Community Reference Group and Architect to complete a draft design for a new Community and Sports Centre in Treeby. The purpose of this facility is to serve the local community and sporting groups, given their growing numbers and needs.

The draft design for this new Community and Sports Centre was developed based on community feedback from early 2019, when we asked our residents what kind of spaces and activities were most important to them. With a construction budget of approximately $5.5 million, the draft design includes elements such as an activity room, "wet" arts and crafts space, a function room, external play area and more.

THANK YOU โค๏ธ

Thank you to all for adhering to the social distancing practices in the last few weeks. A huge thanks to members in our community that are in the front line protecting us all ๐Ÿ‘. Also, a big thanks to our residents who offered up their time to help those in need. We had witnessed many positive interactions on our Facebook and WhatsApp group. It really shows that we are stronger together as a community ๐Ÿ’ช.

It is a time for strength, humanity and kindness. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿค

We are still FAR from over, despite today's news of easing coronavirus restrictions in WA from our Premier Mark McGowan. McGowan has announced a "cautious relaxation" of some COVID restrictions in WA, including allowing indoor and outdoor non-work gatherings of up to 10 people. However, please keep continuing to follow the advice from the Australia Department of Health and WA Department of Health. Take care and reach out if you need help!

 

Have you seen Carl?

This week, our Treeby Gardening Committee had been working on a fun secret project. We would like to introduce Carl, our Community Garden Scarecrow, he will be a permanent resident there while guarding ours produces. ๐Ÿ˜Š 

Feel free to drop by and say hi to Carl! ๐Ÿ‘‹

 

Nextdoor report!

A while back we introduced Nextdoor in our TCA Facebook group. The member has been slowly increasing over the past 6 months. Just today we hit 237 members in 189 households. That is 15% of Calleya!! That is amazing.

I know this may be just 'another social platform' for some, but the great thing about Nextdoor is that anything shared in this neighbourhood will only be read by the residents in Treeby. Unlike Facebook groups where it is hard to control who joins the group.

So, if you are interested to join Nextdoor use this link. ๐Ÿ˜„

15% of Calleyans are on Nextdoor!

If you see trash along your road or in your neighborhood, please take the time to pick it up and throw it away ๐Ÿšฎ.  If you are at the park, please use the public bins for your trash, cigarette butts, and finished cans/bottles.

Please be considerate of others who also might be walking where you have walked by disposing of your dog waste๐Ÿ’ฉ.  Doggie bags are available in the yellow tubes located throughout the estate. If the doggie bags run out, please report it to Cockburn council customer@cockburn.wa.gov.au.

If every person just took a few minutes each week to dispose of trash, we could easily keep our community beautiful โœจ!  Thank you for your time and contribution! ๐Ÿ˜
