Im­prov­ing traf­fic flow

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

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.
