North Coast Times - - NEWS -

THE City of Wan­neroo has agreed to widen a sec­tion of Marmion Av­enue ahead of sched­ule.

The coun­cil unan­i­mously agreed to ad­vance a 1.2km por­tion of the dual car­riage­way project dur­ing a con­fi­den­tial ses­sion at its July 24 meet­ing.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said two in­ter­sec­tions were in­cluded in that sec­tion, be­side Alki­mos Vista es­tate a round­about and a left-in, left-out T-junction.

“The 1.2km sec­tion of road in Alki­mos is be­ing built in ad­vance to limit the need for re­work as part of the over­ar­ch­ing project,” she said.

“Work on the Alki­mos sec­tion is ex­pected to start in Septem­ber 2018 and fin­ish in Fe­bru­ary 2019.

“The City will man­age these works.”

Mrs Roberts said the City would ne­go­ti­ate with de­vel­op­ers and landown­ers about de­vel­oper con­tri­bu­tions for in­ter­sec­tion up­grades.

The de­sign work for the over­all project had al­ready started and con­struc­tion was due to start in Jan­uary and fin­ish in De­cem­ber next year, she said.
