Road upgrades: $12.4m

CAPITAL works projects totalling $42.158 million are included in the City of Wanneroo’s 2013-14 budget, as well as $30.152 million carried forward from the last financial year.

As elected members adopted the budget at the June 25 meeting, Councillor Ian Goodenough said the $72.3 million was available to build new roads, community buildings, infrastructure, and sporting facilities.

‘Significantly $12.4 million will be spent on two key road upgrade projects ” Flynn Drive (Neerabup) and Lenore Road (Wanneroo),’ Cr Goodenough said.

‘The $6.3 million to realign Flynn Drive project is of significance as it will play a pivotal role in opening up the Neerabup industrial area for future economic development.’
