$290m project to take about two years

MAIN Roads spokesman Dean Roberts says the $290 million Community Connect South (CCS) project backed by the cities of Cockburn and Armadale will help to ease traffic congestion.

The project involves widening Armadale Road and building the North Lake Road flyover bridge.

Mr Roberts said it would take about two years to construct the North Lake Road Bridge and freeway interchange � linking North Lake Road and Armadale Rd directly or via Verde Drive in Jandakot.

�Construction of the North Lake Road Bridge will have minimal traffic disruption as it connects proposed roads each side of the Kwinana Freeway which have not yet been constructed.

�The works will involve some disruption to traffic on Kwinana Freeway, but this will be able to be undertaken during weekends and outside peak period times.�

The dual carriageway for Armadale Road � between Verde Drive and Anstey Road � would also take about two years to |construct, but the project required acquisition of land, relocation of services and significant traffic management, Mr Roberts said.
