The Stephenson Avenue extension project has reached a significant milestone with a Statement of Intent between the State Government and City of Stirling signed to progress the first phase of the project.
A WA election commitment, the detailed design for phase one has been completed which will see Stephenson Avenue extended from Scarborough Beach Road to Howe Street.
The project will be delivered in phases, with the first to be delivered by the City of Stirling.
The project will extend Stephenson Avenue from Scarborough Beach Road to Cedric Street and connect key activity hubs, including Westfield Innaloo Shopping Centre, the Osborne Park industrial area and the Stirling City Centre.
Phase one features a traffic signalised intersection at Scarborough Beach Road, new local road connections at Oswald Street and Howe Street, pedestrian and cycling facilities as well as streetscaping.
Design development is expected to be completed before the end of 2019 for the remaining phases of the Stephenson Avenue extension project – extending Stephenson Avenue from Howe Street to Cedric Street and incorporating connections to the Mitchell Freeway.
The Stephenson Avenue extension project has received a commitment of $60 million in State Government funding and $65 million in Australian Government funding.
