WORKS on Marmion Ave are running behind but are expected to be finished by the end of this month, according to the City of Wanneroo.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said the delay, while frustrating was understandable, due to inclement weather, a global health pandemic, unforeseen remedial works and additional major add-ons to the project.

On Thursday, June 4 works around intersections such Graceful Blvd, Cinnabar Dr and Revolution Ave intersections were still underway.

Completion of the 11.5km dual carriageway project is now set for June 30.

Mrs Roberts said the new finish date was announced as part of a revised construction program provided by the project contractor RJ Vincent late last week.

She said the project had been complex and had also changed as it evolved.

“Through close collaboration with Main Roads WA, the Water Corporation, numerous northern corridor developers and other key stakeholders the City and RJ Vincent revised the project plan to include a further $6 million of works,’’ she said.

This included the provision of additional intersections and accommodating the traffic impacts on Marmion Ave resulting from the future Mitchell Fwy extension to Romeo Rd and the extension of the rail to Yanchep.

“Completing these works will now future proof this stretch of road and avoid further disruption to motorists down the track.

“I would like to thank the state government for their $23m contribution to this project and also the community for their patience during construction.

“Without doubt we are all looking forward to completion of the roadworks.”

Landscaping works are also scheduled for completion this year.
