Proposed phone tower for Jandakot

10 April 2024 update

Telstra has advised the City that works on the new 30.8m phone tower at 95 Verde Drive, Jandakot have been delayed with the phone tower expected to be operational in the first half of the 2024-25 Financial Year.

The phone tower should improve mobile phone coverage for residents and businesses in Treeby, Jandakot and Cockburn Central.

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

The State Government has finalised the site classification for special telecommunications purposes. This has allowed the City to provide a lease to Telstra.

The construction of the phone tower is approved, and a building permit issued to Telstra.

The timing of the construction and completion of the tower is not determined by the City of Cockburn.

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.
