Works will also see the Elmina Avenue and Galatea Pass intersections reconfigured and the existing roundabout at Westgrove Drive and The Broadway intersection upgraded to a dual-lane roundabout.
Federal Minister for Population, Cities and Urban Infrastructure Alan Tudge said the 4-Stage project was part of the Federal Government’s Urban Congestion Fund that targets local traffic headaches.
“As each stage of works wraps up, more and more local people will be getting home sooner and safer,” Tudge said.
“We are continuing to get cracking on these targeted projects in Perth and across the country not only for the long term benefits but to support jobs and communities right now.”
Western Australian Minister for Transport Rita Saffioti said the State Government is proud to support The Broadway Duplication project.
“In the past five years, the estimated population in Ellenbrook has increased rapidly from 37,607 to more than 45,000 people,” Saffioti said.
“We are helping to deliver the infrastructure that’s needed to support the size of the population, including the much anticipated METRONET Ellenbrook rail line.”
City of Swan Mayor Kevin Bailey said the City is dedicated to reducing the strain on ratepayers to fund infrastructure projects, and grateful to the State and Federal governments for their significant contributions.
“Stage 3 of the project is worth $2.2 million, with $740,000 funded by the Commonwealth Government Urban Congestion Fund and $1.46 million from the State Government’s Metropolitan Regional Roads Group,” Bailey said.
“The Broadway is the key arterial route that allows access in and out of Ellenbrook, which is why keeping it free of traffic congestion is so important.”
Construction of Stage three is set for completion in January 2021. The project has been jointly funded by the Federal Government committing $3.1 million, the WA Government $6.36 million through MRRG and the City of Swan $2.01 million.
