ONE year on from the state election, promises have started to come to fruition in the Armadale electorate.

One of the biggest local election promises of 2017 kicked off last week, with work starting on the widening of an almost 7km stretch of Armadale Road, which will become a dual carriageway in both directions.

Armadale MLA Tony Buti said while that widening had been green lighted, the flyover bridge aspect of the project was still moving through the public service process.

The $200,000 promise to the One Step Closer program was also handed over in August, along with the $244,400 promised to Starick and their work protecting local women and children.

Mr Buti said Labor’s promise to fix the safety and congestion issues at Kelmscott’s Denny Avenue were progressing well, with funding committed and work expected to start in 2018-19.

He said despite what had been achieved in the first year, there was still plenty more that needed to be done in the next 12 months.

“My focus will be to continue to ensure that my local commitments and commitments made by WA Labor for my community are achieved,” he said.

“I will continue to work with my schools to assist them and also to do what I can to make the Armadale region an attractive place to live in.”
