$800m to accelerate road projects; Lakelands Station confirmed
Motorists using the Tonkin Highway between the new NorthLink and the completed Gateway could see relief sooner – with the Federal Government bringing forward vital infrastructure funding.
The Commonwealth has confirmed WA will receive more than $800 million for four major road projects – as part of a commitment to bring forward four billion dollars of funding nation wide.
The Tonkin Highway ‘gap project’ – over the Swan River at Guildford Road – is one of the four.
Federal Finance Minister Mathias Cormman told Gareth Parker work will now be able to begin sooner that originally planned.
It’s a morning for announcements with WA Transport Minister Rita Saffioti also confirming a train station will be built at Lakelands on the Mandurah line. She says she’s pleased WA will receive a major infrastructure boost from the federal government.
