Budget to improve traffic flow

The City of Wanneroo will provide an additional $200,000 in new funding to the almost $371,000 carried forward for an underground drainage system at Ian Robbins Park, designed to minimise discharge into Emu Lake in Ballajura.

State government grants also will be used, with $181,000 carried forward for the construction of a left-turn lane and upgrade to medians on Alexander Drive, plus $13,000 new to modify traffic lights at Marangaroo Drive and The Avenue junction to stop the right-turn filter.

These will add to the $100,000 carried forward for Alexander Drive and $7000 new for the traffic lights.

Some $15,000 was set aside for the design of two roundabouts on The Avenue at the Adora Street and southern Azelia Street junctions, while $371,000 has been carried forward for the construction of a second carriageway on Hepburn Avenue, from Mirrabooka Avenue and Alexander Drive.

Another $25,000 was carried forward to improve junctions at Crabtree Street, Daventry Drive and Derbi Road.
