Signs up, but Marmion Avenue widening still several months away

THE signs are up, but construction to widen Marmion Avenue from Butler to Yanchep is still several months away.

Wanneroo Deputy Mayor Nat Sangalli asked when people could “see some action” on the road project at the May 29 council meeting.

Cr Sangalli said there had been “chatter” in the community following the recent installation of the signs, which state “expected completion: Dec 2019”.

The City’s assets director Harminder Singh said the consultant was working on the designs and the City was waiting for cost estimates to confirm it had enough funding.

Mr Singh said the project to widen the 11.5km stretch between Camborne Parkway and Yanchep Beach Road would go out for tender about September and construction could start December or January.

He said the City was liaising with several developers about intersections along Marmion Avenue, and some might build portions of the dual carriageway before the City’s project started.

Last August, Butler MLA John Quigley announced the State Government would give the City $23 million to widen the road.
