Kalamunda residents urged to be patient throughout road roads

KALAMUNDA Shire is undertaking a stormwater upgrade in the town centre, installing new drainage in Kalamunda Road near Stirk Park, on Canning Road and Haynes and Barber streets.

Shire chief executive Rhonda Hardy asked shoppers to be patient while the work was underway between July and October.

“Whilst we will experience some short term disruption, the works will increase the drainage capacity of the existing system and pave the way for future improvements to the town centre,” she said.

The Shire and its contactor Densford Civil were focused on minimising disruption to businesses and residents throughout the construction period.

The drainage installation will be followed by the re-construction of the roundabout on Kalamunda and Canning roads and reinstatement of affected asphalt, driveway, kerb and verges, in manageable sections as work progresses.

The planned works will be undertaken within the road reserve, and local, partial road closures will be in place at different stages with detours in place and signage to advise residents of the change.
