Fremantle MP Josh Wilson (foreground) with Treeby residents Kathy Pritchard (bottom), Lani Slaughter (middle) and Christopher Boyce (top) at the telco tower near Amethyst and Platinum Streets.

All the residents in Calleya, Treeby knows the nightmare of having adequate movile signals. Sometimes we need to walk out to our front door just to get one bar! TCA has been working tirelessly with the Cockburn council and local telcos to get this rectified for over 2+ years and this is still on the agenda for most meetings.

Here I would like to provide some update on the enquiries that our MP Josh Wilson has came back to us regarding the mobile signals.

Following enquiries with Telstra concerning a suitable mobile tower site in Treeby, Josh has received a response advising that a preferred location has been identified and Telstra is currently preparing the necessary documentation and working through the Council application process. They have advised that the process will take some time to progress but the details and location will be released for community consultation in the next step. Please keep an eye out in local newspapers for advertisements for when the consultation process opens and closes. Josh has asked Telstra to also keep us informed of these dates. This is good news that there is progress with a real solution for mobile phone coverage for Treeby residents.

There was also a reply to Josh from MP Paul Fletcher, Minister for Communications

While Josh appreciates the Ministerโ€™s office referring the concerns of Treeby residents to Mobile Network Operators and asking for assistance in investing in further mobile infrastructure in Treeby, we find suggestions from the Minister such as purchasing smart antennas and calling using Wifi impractical solutions, particularly for elderly residents. It is also disappointing to read that Treeby is ineligible to receive funding from the Morrison governmentโ€™s Mobile Black Spot Program.

Further to Joshโ€™s letter in May, a second letter was sent to the Minister on 22nd July enquiring about the Morrison governmentโ€™s announcement Peri Urban Mobile Program (PUMP) designed to improve mobile phone services in bushfire prone areas on peri-urban city fringes and to enquire about eligibility for Treeby. A copy of this letter is also attached and we are waiting for a response from the Minister.

 

Here are the letters from MP Wilson's office for your perusal.

Sadly, this will be an ongoing issue until the cell towers are built. Currently, most of Treeby resisdents are using Wifi-Calling features (Voice over Wifi) within their home. Purchasing legal repeaters and smart antennas are an option but an expensive one if you choose to go down that path. Otherwise, we will need to continue to wait!

Great news for all residents in Treeby as our local primary school is now open for enrolment for the 2022 intake.

Here is the short message from the Principal.

Treeby (Banjup West) Primary School planning name is looking forward to welcoming new students and parents. If you are currently living in Treeby, moving to the area or building your dream-home, we would welcome Applications to Enrol for your children to commence Kindy-Year 6 in 2022.

WHAT A TURNOUT!! ๐Ÿ‘

Thank you all for attending our Aussie Day breakfast and connecting with your fellow neighbours. We have a large group of seniors from Aspire coming here early to join us, and we even enticed in a few joggers with free bacon and egg breakfasts (vegetarian options were available too!) ๐Ÿ˜‚

Great to see families bring out their children and participate in many lawn games and mingling with other members. This is what a community event is about!

In total, we cooked 115 eggs, 100 sausages, 6kgs of bacon, 14 loaves of bread, 2 huge watermelons! A shoutout to our community garden crew for donating many fresh produces from the garden for our vegetarian friends and more.

Approximately 120-130 people turned up for the event ๐Ÿฅณ  Well done!

A big thanks to all the TCA volunteers to make this happen and see you on the next one! ๐Ÿ˜Š

 

Many of you may have read or heard about the proposed Bus Route 523 in Calleya ๐Ÿš.

A huge thanks to Yaz Mubarakai MLA for actively pushing for a bus route service in Calleya Estate. A total of 214 signatures and working with the Minister for Transport, the Hon Rita Saffioti, they are happy to announce on Nov 9th 2020 that a bus Route 523 will start its community consultation on 16th November. This is one step closer to getting the service ๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸŽ‰

Below is the proposed route or for a better look you can download the PDF here.

Route 523 ๐ŸšŒ is proposed to operate seven days a week at the following times:

  • Every 15 minutes during weekday peak periods
  • Every 60 minutes during off-peak weekdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Services would be timed to formally connect with trains at Cockburn Central Station.

The Proposed Route 523 in Consultation stage

WE WANT YOUR FEEDBACK!

This is where we can make some changes. Transperth is seeking public opinions on Route 523!

If you have any comments or suggestions, please let them know before 4th December 2020

https://www.mysaytransport.wa.gov.au/proposed-new-route-523

The survey will only take 10 minutes max. So let them know what you think! ๐Ÿ˜Š

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:

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

Visit Opal Aged Care Specialist website.

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.
