INSTALLATION of eight entry statements on the City of Wanneroo’s boundaries started recently.

The $350,000 project includes installation of four 4m-tall signs and four 3m-tall signs at main entry points to the City.

The council approved a design recommended by the Reconciliation Action Plan group in early 2016, with each sign featuring the Noongar “Wandjoo” as well as the English “Welcome”.

The City is installing the four larger signs on Wanneroo Road in Girrawheen, Indian Ocean Drive in Two Rocks, Joondalup Drive in Neerabup and Gnangara Road in Landsdale.

The smaller signs are for Marmion Avenue in Tamala Park, Alexander Drive in Koondoola, Ocean Reef Road in Wanneroo and Neaves Road in Mariginiup.

The design represents the land and sea with a mix of natural materials – limestone and timber – represented.

Installation started in November, and final landscaping works will be done next May.
