The Liberal Government will be getting the people of Pearce home sooner and safer with a $2.5 million investment to bust congestion at the intersection of Shorehaven Boulevard and Marmion Avenue in Alkimos.
Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter, who has been campaigning with local residents to get the notorious intersection fixed, welcomed this announcement.
“This is something I have been fighting hard for, and today I am so pleased to announce we’ve fixed the Shorehaven Boulevard intersection,” Mr Porter said.
“Over 400 people signed my petition to fix the intersection and today the Liberal Government has listened to these community concerns and has delivered.
“This crucial project will upgrade the intersection to improve traffic flow for the growing community, reduce congestion and minimise the risk of crashes.”
Marmion Avenue is a primary north-south route providing access to the growing northern suburbs of Perth. The intersection of Marmion Avenue and Shorehaven Boulevard experiences congestion particularly during the morning and afternoon peak periods – something the Liberal Government is committed to address.
The $2.5 million investment is part of a $96 million infrastructure package announced by Prime Minister Scott Morrison earlier today to tackle congestion right across Perth.
“We’re continuing to invest in infrastructure and roads right across Western Australia, and the net result is people will spend less time stuck in traffic and more time at home with their families,” Mr Porter said.
