 Revegetation works

Planting season is approaching and you will start to see revegetation across the Project in mid-2024.

Did you know that across the project we will revegetate more than 291,000 square metres which is equivalent to more than 40 soccer pitchers?

 METRONET Morley-Ellenbrook Line
Broun Avenue / Embleton Avenue intersection works

Last month we finished asphalt  works at the Broun / Embleton intersection and this month we are completing hoop cutting to install vehicle detection sensors, median concreting and kerbing, brick pacing, property and verge reinstatement, permanent line marking and finishing works.

Once complete, we will open the intersection back up to full capacity and commission the permanent traffic signals.





 Malaga footbridge construction and Principal Shared Path now open

Last month we successfully installed the bridge deck segments for the Malaga footbridge over Tonkin Highway. We also reopened the Principal Shared Path (PSP) between Premier Place and Marshall Road. We thank you for your patience whilst this section of PSP was closed. We will continue works at the footbridge in May and June.

 Take a look at how the footbridge was installed over Tonkin Highway.
