More room com­ing on free­way

Stirling Times - - News -

WORK is start­ing to ease con­ges­tion on the south­bound lanes of the Mitchell Free­way.

Premier Mark Mc­Gowan and Stir­ling MHR Michael Keenan an­nounced last week work was start­ing to widen the south­bound lanes from Cedric to Vin­cent streets.

The project will cre­ate about 7km of ex­tra lane to pro­vide four con­tin­u­ous lanes on the free­way from Erindale Road to Vin­cent Street.

The State Gov­ern­ment has con­trib­uted $8 mil­lion to the $40 mil­lion project, with the rest funded by the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment.

Mr Keenan said it would fix ma­jor bot­tle­necks on the free­way and sig­nif­i­cantly shorten travel times dur­ing morn­ing peak.

Bris­bane-based BMD Con­struc­tion will de­liver the works.
