2019 is shaping up to be a big year for capital works in the City of Kalamunda, with over 20 projects scheduled for completion in the next 12 months.
Mayor John Giardina said, “The City has a record breaking capital works project this year.”
“Safety will be improved on the City’s road network with seven road projects scheduled to get underway in the first half of the year.”
Some of these projects include $6.47 million in upgrades to Hale Road, $2.2 million for improvements to Mundaring Weir Rd, $1.5 million in modifications to the Forrestfield industrial precinct network and over $500,000 in shoulder improvements to Canning Road.
Seven pathway projects are now under construction and two more are set to kick off by February. Key locations include Berkshire Road, Pickering Brook Road and Kalamunda Road.
The second stage of the Woodlupine Brook revamp will conclude in early 2019, with the completion of a half basketball court, outdoor exercise area as well as irrigation and grassing of the open spaces adjacent to the living stream in Wattle Grove.
Kalamunda Sporting Precinct will receive lighting improvements, bringing Kostera Oval to competition standard and Hedley Jorgensen Oval to training standard.
The design of the Kalamunda Community Centre at Jorgensen Park is underway and will be finalised later this year.
The City will also be calling for community input on a number of upcoming and current projects including the draft Kalamunda Activity Centre Plan, Environmental Land Use Planning Strategy, Innovative Housing Strategy, Forrestfield North Transit Oriented Development and many more.
