Promis­ing Pledge

Stirling Times - - News -

The City could be one step closer to be­com­ing Perth’s sec­ond CBD, thanks to a multi-mil­lion dol­lar bud­get com­mit­ment from Fed­eral Op­po­si­tion Leader Bill Shorten. Mr Shorten last week pledged $64 mil­lion dol­lars to­wards stage one of the Stir­ling City Cen­tre project. Stage one in­volves the con­struc­tion of the Stephen­son Av­enue ex­ten­sion and a new Free­way in­ter­change, which would im­me­di­ately re­lieve con­ges­tion, un­lock land and fa­cil­i­tate light rail in stage two.
