The City of Cockburn’s years of advocacy for improved services to eliminate mobile phone coverage blackspots for residents and businesses in Treeby, Jandakot and Cockburn Central continues to progress.
The proposed location for the 30.8m tower is at a previously cleared lot at 95 Verde Drive in a Jandakot commercial industrial area.
The State Government is progressing with a reclassification of this site for the special purpose of telecommunications.
This will enable the City to be granted a Management Order by the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage, and lease the land to Telstra.
Approval for Telstra to begin construction can then be granted by the City, with Aurecon due to begin work in mid-2023 for completion of the project by the end of that year.
This site was chosen based on a network analysis by Telstra engineers, as suitable to service perceived mobile phone black spots in the area.
