Bat­tle for Burt bridge

Cockburn Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

THE se­cond phase of a plan to link ma­jor hubs and ad­dress traf­fic con­ges­tion from the Hills to the west coast has been ig­nited.

La­belled the “bat­tle for Burt”, the cities of Cock­burn and Ar­madale are seek­ing fed­eral dol­lars to fund a new $160 mil­lion bridge over the Kwinana Free­way to link Ar­madale Road di­rectly with North Lake Road.

With a re­cent sur­vey find­ing more than half the res­i­dents in Ar­madale would vote for a party com­mit­ted to build­ing the bridge, the two coun­cils plan to use the up­com­ing fed­eral elec­tion to help se­cure the money.
