CAVERSHAM is set to be more accessible after an extension of Lord Street was officially opened last month.

Called Daviot Road, the 500m dual carriageway road extends Lord Street south of Reid Highway to Suffolk and Patricia streets.

Funded through the City of Swan’s developer contribution plan, the extension is intended to open up Caversham to a wider road network.

City of Swan Mayor Mick Wainwright said the extension was welcome as it improved traffic flow for residents.

He said they planned for the Lord Street extension when City crews upgraded the Reid Highway and Lord Street intersection.
