Works start to con­nect es­tate road

North Coast Times - - NEWS -

AN Alki­mos de­vel­oper has started works to con­nect an es­tate to Marmion Av­enue ahead of the $23 mil­lion widen­ing pro­ject sched­uled to start next year.

A Lendlease spokes­woman said road­works along Marmion Av­enue were due to fin­ish in the next two weeks and would pro­vide a tem­po­rary ac­cess point into Alki­mos Vista.

She said con­struc­tion of a round­about would start in Au­gust, which would form the per­ma­nent en­try to the es­tate once com­pleted in early 2019.

At the Two Rocks Yanchep Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion meet­ing on June 25, Mayor Tracey Roberts said there were 16 in­ter­sec­tions along Marmion Av­enue that plan­ners needed to fac­tor into the dual-car­riage­way de­sign.

City parks and con­ser­va­tion man­ager Grant Chet­tle­burgh was a guest speaker at the meet­ing and said the City would have a tem­po­rary wa­ter li­cence to es­tab­lish trees along the dual car­riage­way.

“We want to cre­ate a tree-lined av­enue as much as pos­si­ble,” he said.
