Hous­ing, in­fra­struc­ture awards


Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

THE City of Bel­mont has pre­sented Op­por­tu­nity Awards to Main Roads WA and LandCorp.

The Op­por­tu­nity Awards recog­nise the achieve­ments of an in­di­vid­ual, group or or­gan­i­sa­tion that has en­hanced the amenity and qual­ity of life in the City of Bel­mont or as­sisted the City to achieve its ob­jec­tives.

Mayor Phil Marks said LandCorp had re­ceived the award for part­ner­ing with the City of Bel­mont to achieve an out­stand­ing de­vel­op­ment at The Springs, River­vale.

“The ex­pe­ri­ence of this or­gan­i­sa­tion in land de­vel­op­ment is per­fectly demon­strated to­day in the out­comes of The Springs, transforming a very dif­fi­cult area to re­de­velop into a uni­fied and highly de­sir­able es­tate,” he said.

“The new build­ings in­clude the 16-storey, 188-apart­ment Spring View Tow­ers, the Ar­bor North apart­ment, the Flo apart­ments which in­cor­po­rates a host of en­vi­ron­men­tally sus­tain­able fea­tures, the mixed com­mer­cial and res­i­den­tial Prox­im­ity de­vel­op­ment and the soon to be com­pleted 224-room Aloft ho­tel – to name a few.”

Cr Marks pre­sented the sec­ond award to Main Roads’ Gate­way WA Project for mak­ing a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to the City of Bel­mont’s in­fra­struc­ture that has trans­formed the area.

“Main Roads WA has worked in part­ner­ship with the City on West­ern Aus­tralia’s largest road project,” Cr Marks said.

“This iconic project has made a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to the City by pro­vid­ing an im­proved safe and ef­fi­cient ma­jor road net­work,” he said.

“It has trans­formed the en­try to Perth Air­port and up­graded the ef­fi­ciency of one of the most im­por­tant trans­port hubs in the State.

“For the City, an im­por­tant new in­ter­change at Tonkin High­way and Dun­reath Drive pro­vides ac­cess to the cur­rent Qan­tas/Jet­star do­mes­tic air­port and the fu­ture Bel­mont train sta­tion di­rect from Tonkin High­way.

“The ‘Grand Gate­way’, the prom­i­nent fea­ture of the project, is lo­cated in the City of Bel­mont and cre­ates a themed jour­ney be­tween the en­try to Perth Air­port and the City and in­cludes im­pres­sive fea­ture light­ing and land­scap­ing.”
