LOCAL business owners have received an update on infrastructure works being undertaken in the Belmont Business Park by City of Belmont.

The session was held at the Aloft Hotel on April 5 when councillors and staff joined with business owners to hear about the updates.

The first phase of works has involved the rollout of a street parking program to increase the number of car bays; providing immediate benefit to customers and improving the overall landscape.

This phase of works is three quarters complete.

The next phase and a major component of the infrastructure upgrade is the undergrounding of power in Belmont Avenue between Great Eastern Highway and Alexander Road.

This significant piece of work is planned to commence later in the year.

Following this a street tree planting program will result in more than 200 street trees being planted in the business park to provide relief from the heat island effect, improve the street tree canopy generally within the City, and importantly improve the streetscape of the business park as a whole.

Belmont Business Park is in a strategic location between Perth CBD, Perth Airport and industrial areas to the south, and is bounded by Great Eastern Highway, Knutsford Avenue and Belgravia Street.

The $12 million Belmont Business Park Infrastructure upgrade project is jointly funded by the City of Belmont and the Federal Government through the National Stronger Regions.
