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.

“With detailed design of the first phase of the Stephenson Avenue extension complete, this project is on track for construction to begin in 2020.” Premier Mark McGowan said.

McGowan election commitment, the detailed design for Phase 1 has been completed which will see Stephenson Avenue extended from Scarborough Beach Road to Howe Street.

Project will be delivered in phases, with the first to be delivered by the City of Stirling.

“With the design complete, geotechnical investigations and environmental approvals are well underway, allowing phase one of the Stephenson Avenue extension project to begin construction in early 2020.” Minister for Transport Rita Saffioti said.

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.

“Extension of Stephenson Avenue is the first step towards creating a gateway to the Stirling City Centre.” City of Stirling Mayor Mark Irwin said.

Phase 1 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 the year 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.
