Proposed phone tower for Jandakot

Telstra is proposing to construct a new 30.8m phone tower at 95 Verde Drive, Jandakot which should improve mobile phone coverage for residents and businesses in Treeby, Jandakot and Cockburn Central.  Construction of the tower is expected to begin mid-2023 and should be completed by the end of 2023. 

The site was chosen by Telstra as a suitable site to address the mobile phone black spots in the Treeby area. The land where the tower will be located is surrounded by commercial industrial development and will not require additional clearing.

The State Government is in the process of reclassifying the use of the site for special telecommunications purposes. This will allow the City to manage the site and lease the land to Telstra. Once this process is completed, the City can issue an approval for the construction of the phone tower which is expected to begin mid-2023. 

Who is responsible for telecommunications?

The responsibility for telecommunications lies exclusively with the Commonwealth Government.  The City is not a telecommunications carrier under the Telecommunications Act 1997, nor does the City have the technical expertise or means to install, or project manage its own telecommunications infrastructure, temporary or otherwise.

The City has been advocating for several years with telecommunication providers and government agencies to improve mobile phone coverage in black spot areas throughout the City.
