Joondalup Weekender - - Front Page -

A ROAD con­nec­tion from Rocca Way to Con­lan Av­enue is ex­pected to help re­vi­talise the Wan­neroo town cen­tre.

Wan­neroo Coun­cil ap­proved the con­nec­tion dur­ing a con­fi­den­tial ses­sion at its meet­ing on Tues­day night.

The re­sult of the con­struc­tion and up­grades will al­low the two roads to con­nect, cre­at­ing a ‘main street’ in the Wan­neroo town cen­tre.

It aims to es­tab­lish a pedes­trian and low-speed ve­hic­u­lar con­nec­tion be­tween Wan­neroo Road and Dun­de­bar Road, through the town cen­tre.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said the project would re­vi­talise the town cen­tre and mod­ernise the din­ing and shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence for vis­i­tors.

“The Rocca Way and Con­lan Av­enue con­nec­tion will cre­ate a sense of place by ac­ti­vat­ing the space, as well as be­come a fo­cal point around a new en­trance to the shop­ping cen­tre,” she said.

The coun­cil unan­i­mously agreed to list an ex­tra $25,000 in its 2018-19 Bud­get for the project.
