Improving traffic flow
THE City of Belmont has welcomed the Federal Government’s $6 million contribution towards improving Belmont Business Park Transport Infrastructure.
The $12 million project will upgrade transport infrastructure in and around the park.
The area is bounded by Great Eastern Highway, Knutsford, Esther and Belmont avenues, Alexander, Fisher, Hubert, Frederick and Daly streets, and has more than 800 businesses.
Belmont Mayor Phil Marks said the project would help improve traffic flow, allow for more sustainable public transport and create a more aesthetically pleasing and functional thoroughfare on Belmont Avenue.
“The Belmont Business Park is a strategic initiative to stimulate growth of the City’s major business area and has been a high priority to the City of Belmont for more than a decade,” he said.
The project includes upgrading Belmont Avenue cycle and pedestrian paths and streetscape, an additional 800 parking bays, putting power on Belmont Avenue underground, and the upgrade and addition of bus stops with improved shelter.
