City of Mandurah finalists in awards for pedestrian bridge and Ocean Road Active Reserve

TWO of the City of Mandurah’s major community infrastructure projects are finalists in the IPWEA WA Engineering Excellence Awards.

The Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia awards recognise excellence in the design and construction of engineering projects.

The City has been nominated under the local government category, the GK Waters Local Government Engineering Excellence Award for the Ocean Road Active Reserve and Mandurah Road Pedestrian Bridge projects.

The Ocean Road Active Reserve project has delivered an environmentally sustainable water supply for the irrigation of the two primary school ovals and created a new, two-hectare active reserve for the well-being of the community.

Safety and connectivity are among the benefits of the Mandurah Road Pedestrian Bridge project has brought to local residents, commuters and future Mandurah communities.

The significant engineering project has been delivered to ensure future surrounding suburbs and affordable housing are well connected with transport linkages.

City chief executive Mark Newman said he was proud the City was being recognised for achievements in the engineering and construction field, as well as the benefits these projects brought to the community.

The winners will be announced at the annual State Conference this Friday.
