Works are underway or nearing completion to upgrade three of Wyndham’s busy roads.
Construction is progressing well on the upgrade of Forsyth and Boundary Roads, while Armstrong Road works are nearing completion.
Wyndham City Mayor and Growth and Transport Portfolio Holder, Cr Mia Shaw, said the three projects were part of Wyndham City’s $146 million capital works Budget for the 2018/18 year.
“These projects are really important to our community,” Cr Shaw said.
“We’re widening Forsyth Road between Old Geelong Road and Sayers Road, building an extra lane in each direction, installing signals at Waterways Boulevard and Federation Trail Crossing, and rebuilding the existing roadway.”
“Earthworks and drainage works are underway, and we’re looking forward to seeing this $7.5 million Wyndham City project completed by mid-2019.”
“Over at Boundary Road, we’re sealing a 2.8km stretch of gravel road between Derrimut Road and the Regional Rail Link overpass.”
“This $4.1 million Wyndham City project will make the existing road smoother and safer. The road is currently being sealed, and we’re looking forward to completion in March 2019.”
“Both of these upgrades will help to ease traffic by offering an alternative route while the State Government delivers its Western Roads Upgrade program, which will see eight of our busiest roads and intersections upgraded.”
Cr Shaw said she was also looking forward to the completion of works at Armstrong Road in Wyndham Vale.
“This is one I’m looking forward to as Mayor, as the Growth and Transport Portfolio Holder, and as an Iramoo Ward Councillor,” Cr Shaw said.
“I know my fellow Iramoo Ward Councillors Peter Maynard and Heather Marcus are also looking forward to this.”
“Construction on this $11.5 million project is now complete, and minor works, such as public lighting and signal works are being finalised before the new road opens up very soon.”
