Road up­grade wel­come

Eastern Reporter - - News -

THE Hep­burn Av­enue ex­ten­sion project from two lanes to four in Ballajura was com­pleted last month.

The City of Swan and the State Gov­ern­ment’s con­struc­tion works started in Jan­uary.

Mayor Mick Wain­wright said the sec­tion of road be­tween Alexan­der and Bellefin drives was now a dual car­riage­way.

“This sec­tion of road has been at ca­pac­ity for some time, so the up­grade will make a big dif­fer­ence to the more than 17,000 ve­hi­cles trav­el­ling on it ev­ery day,” he said.

Cr Adam Ko­valevs said the $3.9 mil­lion project, funded by the State Gov­ern­ment and City of Swan, had been com­pleted on time and on bud­get.

“The num­ber of ve­hi­cles us­ing this road is only ex­pected to grow with the planned con­struc­tion of NorthLink WA and our grow­ing pop­u­la­tion, so the up­grade could not have come at a bet­ter time,” he said.
