Deviation to smooth flow: Criddle

A NEW Dawesville deviation will bring benefits to the South West says Transport Minister Murray Criddle.

“The Dawesville deviation will reduce congestion currently experienced on the Old Coast Road.

Mr Criddle said the project would provide a strategic link to the South West, and support residential and economic development.

The deviation will be constructed from the existing dual carriageway at Port Bouvard Bridge, south of the Dawesville Channel, to Tims Thicket Road.

The deviation will provide two pedestrian underpasses to improve safety and access for pedestrians and cyclists.

Work is scheduled to start in July 2000 and take twelve months to complete.

Mandurah will also gain a new $220 million ocean marina after the project was given the green light by Premier Richard Court.

The marina will be developed by LandCorp in conjunction with the Peel Development Commission and the City of Mandurah.

Mr Court said the bulk of the project would be privately funded.

Government investment of around $50 million would fund infrastructure such as the construction of the harbour and surrounding land development, plus the value of the land included in the project.

The development, the largest of its kind in the State, will include a world-class marina, a range of accommodation options including a resort development and self-contained family chalets, retail and commercial opportunities, residential areas and recreation.

Mr Court said the international standard facilities would add to Mandurah’s appeal and generate millions of dollars for the local economy.

Construction work has commenced with the building of a new sea wall and the provision of a nesting site for displaced fairy terns.
