Capel Entry Statement & Roundabout Works

The Shire of Capel advises that construction of the Capel Entry Statement Project will commence in April 2017.

The signage and artwork has been designed by Erin Rafferty. As a graphic artist, Erin Rafferty has spent numerous hours to finalise the design and the Council endorsed her design for implementation.

The work includes:

  • Replacement of the two existing entry signs at the Northern and Southern ends of Capel Drive
  • Installation of a new sign on Goodwood Road and
  • Install artwork tube at the Northern Roundabout at Capel Drive.

The work will take up to four weeks to complete. At various times during the installation, (such as when the crane will be required to lift the artworks into place), traffic management will be in place near the roundabout at Capel Drive, Widdeson Road and Gavins Road.

If you have any concerns or queries regarding the timing or the scope of works please do not hesitate to contact Shahin Mahmud on 97270222, or email at info@capel.wa.gov.au.
