Closure of Moolanda Footbridge
Frequently Asked Questions
Why is the footbridge over Moolanda Boulevard closed?
Each year the City is required to undertake routine visual inspection of all its bridges and underpasses. For a number of years, these inspections have highlighted rotting and fungal activities on the Moolanda footbridge’s timber member.
An interim detailed inspection of the footbridge was undertaken by Main Roads WA (MRWA) in September 2020 on behalf of the City whereby good solid timber was found to sufficiently hold the bridge up. A full detailed inspection was being scheduled by MRWA to be undertaken as part of their annual program.
However since then, there has been major and rapid deterioration of some members of the timber footbridge over the last 12 to 18 months resulting in a risk of the bridge failing if subjected to loads. Upon advice received from MRWA and in the interest of public safety, the City made the difficult decision to close access to the footbridge at the end of April 2022.
When will the footbridge over Moolanda Boulevard be open again?
The City is currently working with MRWA to design a temporary solution involving the propping of the existing timber footbridge that should allow the bridge to be reopened by late-2022, whilst a more permanent solution is being investigated and funding obtained.
Will the timber footbridge remain or be replaced?
The advice the City received from MRWA, which was informed by an independent structural assessment, suggested that the timber footbridge’s condition is beyond repair and as such will require replacement.
The new footbridge will be designed to meet the relevant Australian Standards and continue to serve as a vital link in the City’shared path network.
When will the new footbridge be constructed?
Construction of any bridge takes significant planning and development. The City is currently working with MRWA to commence the process of a full detailed design of the new footbridge.
Upon completion of the detailed design, the City will engage a specialist contractor to remove the existing and construct the new footbridge. The footbridge will be required to be closed again to facilitate these works.
At this stage, and all things going well, the City is hopeful that a new footbridge will be completed by late-2023 in accord to the following broad timeline:
- Mid to late 2022: Temporary propping works arrange
- Late 2022: Re-opening of existing timber footbridge
- Mid 2022 – mid 2023: New footbridge planning and development occurs
- Mid – late 2023: New footbridge construction and opening
What detours are in place?
Whist the footbridge is closed, detours will be in place directing users to to cross Moolanda Boulevard at-grade located down the entry ramps either side of the bridge. Please follow the signage provided onsite and be courteous to other path users.
Further interim improvements to detours and crossings will be introduced as the project develops.

How to report abandoned shopping trolleys
The City encourages community members to report all trolley sightings direct to their respective collection services. These services are solely dedicated to collecting abandoned trolleys and provide rapid deployment of collectors to remove trolleys shortly after they are reported. To report an abandoned shopping trolley, please refer to the below contacts:
|Aldi||Report to Aldi via the Aldi online form|
1st Choice Liquor Stores
|Report to Coles via:
|Target||1800 163 900|
| Report to Trolley Tracker via:
|SpudShed||Report to Supdshed via their online form|
The City of Joondalup’s Officers regularly locate, report, and impound abandoned shopping trolleys in line with the City’s Local Laws and will investigate any reports received.
If you use a shopping trolley, it is your responsibility to ensure the trolley remains in the shopping centre precinct and return it to the designated trolley collection point. Leaving a shopping trolley in a public place or on the verge causing an obstruction is considered an offence under the Local Government and Public Property Local Law 2014.
The Local Government and Public Property Local Law 2014 stipulates retailers must collect abandoned shopping trolleys within 24 hours of notification from the local authority. If the shopping trolley is not collected, the trolley may be impounded, and an infringement issued to the responsible retailer.

Native Fauna Awareness
Native fauna awareness in spring
Spring is the most active time for native animals of all descriptions – snakes, turtles and birds of all types are looking for food, breeding and raising young.
September to February is turtle breeding season. Keep an eye out for Southwestern Snake-necked Turtles on roads and paths, particularly surrounding wetland areas, to avoid harming hatchlings.
August to October is nesting season for magpies and occasionally male magpies become territorial to protect their young and may swoop if they think the nest or offspring are in danger. If you are swooped by a magpie, stay calm, don’t run and avoid looking towards swooping birds. If outdoors during nesting season wear a broad-brimmed hat and sunglasses to protect the face and eyes. Avoid areas with territorial magpies.
To assist residents and visitors, the City encourages the public to report incidents involving territorial magpies which will be added to a register and available on the City’s website.
In early spring, snakes such as dugites and tiger snakes become more active looking for food, breeding and basking in the sun to warm up. If a snake finds its way into your house remain calm (to avoid disturbing it), do not attempt to catch or kill it. If you find a snake in a garden or a house, contact Wildcare Helpline on 9474 9055 to be referred to a reptile remover.
Take care when visiting parks and playgrounds and check surroundings for the presence of snakes before allowing children to play.
All native fauna are protected species under the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016. For further information on the beautiful native animals that can be found within the City, check out the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions’ website.

Petitions to Council
Petitions inform the Council of the views of a section of the community and serve as one way of placing community concerns before Council.
The subject of a petition must be a matter on which the City has the power to act. Care must be taken in the wording of petitions as the City requires certain information and content to be included to be a valid petition.
Petitions are required to conform to a number of requirements relating to the format and the information presented. Electors are encouraged to use the Petition of Electors form to avoid the possibility of the petition being ruled out of order and not being presented to Council.
A petition is to:
- Be prepared in the prescribed form (or similar to that form)
- Be addressed to the Council and forwarded to the Mayor, a Councillor or the Chief Executive Officer
- Be made by at least 25 electors of the district (an “elector” is a person who owns or occupies rateable property within the City of Joondalup and is eligible to vote in local government and state government elections)
- State the request on each page of the petition
- Contain a summary of the reasons for the request
- Contain the hand written names, addresses and signatures of the electors and the date signed
- State the name of the person upon whom (initiator), and an address at which, notice of the outcome of the petition request can be given
- Be respectful and temperate in its language and not contain language disrespectful to Council
- Be legible
- Not contain any alterations
- Not have any letters or other documents attached to it, however a covering letter is permissible.
The City is unable to accept online petitions as they do not conform to the above requirements.
To prepare a petition, please use the Petition of Electors form.
Presenting the petition
Lead petitioners can hand deliver their petition to the Chief Executive Officer at the City’s Administration Centre, or present it to a City of Joondalup Elected Member.
Clause 5.11 of the City’s Meeting Procedures Local Law 2013 details the decision-making process following the presentation of a petition to Council:
(2) On the presentation of a petition –
(a) the member presenting it or the CEO is confined to reading the petition; and
(b) the only motion that is in order is that the petition be received and, if necessary, that it be referred to the CEO for action.
(3) At any meeting, the Council or committee is not to vote on any matter that is the subject of a petition presented to that meeting, unless-
(a) the matter is the subject of a report in the agenda; and
(b) the Council or committee has considered the issues raised in the petition.
It is requested that Petitions are received at or prior to a Briefing Session, to allow the petition to be checked for validity in accordance with clause 5.11 (1) of the City of Joondalup Meeting Procedures Local Law 2013, and included on the agenda for the Council meeting immediately following the Briefing Session.
Petitions received after a Briefing Session will be included on the agenda for the following month, except where the petition relates to an item on the agenda at that Council meeting.
Should the petition be formally received by Council, the petition will be referred to the Chief Executive Officer and the City’s Administration for investigation. The City will inform the lead petitioner of the decision of the Council in relation to the petition, including any action proposed, which may involve having a report prepared for a future meeting of Council for its consideration.
During the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the City will follow the public health advice from the State Government and the WA Department of Health which may restrict public attendance at the City of Joondalup meetings. In such situations, information will be published in the relevant meeting agenda and advice will be posted on the City’s website.
