The Advocate (Perth) - - NEWS -

MAIN Roads is of­fer­ing the com­mu­nity a chance to be among the first to see the new NorthLink WA ex­ten­sion of Tonkin High­way this month.

Free bus tours will be avail­able to in­ter­ested res­i­dents through the con­struc­tion site of the NorthLink WA cen­tral sec­tion from Reid High­way to El­len­brook on Septem­ber 15.

Mem­bers of the pub­lic are en­cour­aged to take the op­por­tu­nity to tour along the new road align­ment, view the Tonkin High­way en­trance into El­len­brook and ask the con­struc­tion team ques­tions. Three bus tours will be held on the morn­ing of Septem­ber 15, de­part­ing at 9.15am, 10.30am and 11.45am.

The tours will take one hour, with bus pick-up and drop-off at The Pot­ter’s House.

Trans­port Min­is­ter Rita Saf­fi­oti said the tours would be a unique op­por­tu­nity for res­i­dents to see the progress of NorthLink.

“I am pleased to of­fer our com­mu­nity the unique op­por­tu­nity to tour through this sig­nif­i­cant in­fra­struc­ture project and see the mag­ni­tude of the works first-hand,” she said.

“NorthLink WA con­struc­tion is pro­gress­ing at an in­cred­i­ble pace with the cen­tral sec­tion now over 50 per cent com­pleted and all road bridges un­der con­struc­tion.

“I would rec­om­mend peo­ple re­serve a place as soon as pos­si­ble.”
