The Major Road Connection between Corrigin and Kondinin is about to become two lanes throughout, with the State Government awarding a $3.37 Million contract to upgrade the Final 5 km Section.

Transport Minister Simon O’Brien said Local Shires in the area would combine to rebuild and widen the Five Kilometres of the Brookton Highway, known locally as the Munday’s Tree Section.

“The Project involves Widening the Road Seal, which will significantly improve road safety, and the installation of two drainage box culverts to address accessibility issues due to Flooding.” Mr. O’Brien said.

“This Project is also an excellent example of combining Local and State Government agency resources to deliver a very good value-for-money project.”

 

“The shires of Kondinin, Kulin and Corrigin will combine resources under the management of the Shire of Kondinin.  Main Roads WA will oversee the project delivery and provide engineering, surveying and material-testing support.” Mr. O’Brien said.

The Minister said the shires’ plant and personnel would be combined to deliver the works to ensure the best value for money and providing local area employment.

“Working together will ensure that the best skills and experience will be utilised on the project to achieve a very high standard end product.” Mr. O’Brien said.

Site preparation work is expected to start towards the end of 2010, with major construction commencing in the new year and an expected completion date of May 2011.
