$290m pro­ject to take about two years

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

MAIN Roads spokesman Dean Roberts says the $290 mil­lion Com­mu­nity Con­nect South (CCS) pro­ject backed by the cities of Cock­burn and Ar­madale will help to ease traf­fic con­ges­tion.

The pro­ject in­volves widen­ing Ar­madale Road and build­ing the North Lake Road fly­over bridge.

Mr Roberts said it would take about two years to con­struct the North Lake Road Bridge and free- way in­ter­change – link­ing North Lake Road and Ar­madale Rd di­rectly or via Verde Drive in Jan­dakot.

“Con­struc­tion of the North Lake Road Bridge will have min­i­mal traf­fic dis­rup­tion as it con­nects pro­posed roads each side of the Kwinana Free­way which have not yet been con­structed.

“The works will in­volve some dis­rup­tion to traf­fic on Kwinana Free­way, but this will be able to be un­der­taken dur­ing week­ends and out­side peak pe­riod times.”

The dual car­riage­way for Ar­madale Road – be­tween Verde Drive and Anstey Road – would also take about two years to con­struct, but the pro­ject re­quired ac­qui­si­tion of land, re­lo­ca­tion of ser­vices and sig­nif­i­cant traf­fic man­age­ment, Mr Roberts said.
