$2.5M bridge and $800k road widening
The duplication of Spearwood Avenue between Barrington Street and Beeliar Drive, in Yangebup has begun, with work due for completion by December 2019. Although there will be disruption over the coming months, bear with us as the works will improve safety and congestion.
Ertech Pty Ltd will construct the dual carriageway, including duplication of the existing bridge over the rail freight lines, for more than $8m.
The project includes road construction, street lighting (Western Power), Telstra cables, storm water drainage, line-marking/signage (Main Roads WA), landscaping, and traffic, environment and stakeholder management.
There will be extensive traffic management in place along Spearwood Avenue for the duration of the works.
The State Government is contributing $2.46m, the Federal Government $2.10m and the City of Cockburn about $4m to complete the project. An extra $657,000 will be needed to cover service relocations and Main Roads WA costs.
