Fix Traffic Congestion - Build Armadale Rd Bridge

Over 100,000 vehicles travel through central Cockburn every day, resulting in traffic chaos.  The cities of Cockburn and Armadale are asking the Government to commit $160 million to connect North Lake Road with Kwinana Freeway and Armadale Road via a flyover bridge.

Congestion at Cockburn Central is creating barriers to the growth and prosperity of the region and has a flow on effect from Armadale through to Jandakot, Fremantle and the rest of Perth.

This election, tell Canberra to help fund Armadale Road Bridge.
