Bridge cost revealed
CITY of Cockburn will spend about $1.2 million from its budget on the Spearwood Avenue Bridge Duplication.
The proposed duplication between Beeliar Drive and Barrington Street is a project on the Capital Works Program for 2017/18.
There are two components to the project: the duplication of the road and duplication of the existing bridge over the freight rail corridor south of Barrington Street.
Road duplication is estimated to cost $3.7 million. The Federal Department of Infrastructure will pay up to $2.5million, with the State contributing $1.25 million, pending construction costs.
