WORK on the first stage of dualling Marmion Avenue is to start soon with a second carriageway to be built on the 1.2km section adjacent to Alkimos Vista estate.

The stage one work is expected to be completed in February next year.

It is the first of an expected three-stage $23 million project funded by the state government, which will continue the dualling of Marmion Ave from Butler to Yanchep.

City of Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said traffic management arrangements would remain in place until the works had been completed.

Road users are advised to follow the signage and be aware that some traffic disruptions may occur during this time.

“We are thrilled that this substantial project is about to begin,” she said.

“The northern corridor is experiencing considerable growth and is already under tremendous traffic pressure.

“The dualling of this 11.5km stretch of road will increase capacity on Marmion Ave and decrease congestion at intersections, better facilitating the movement of traffic in our northern suburbs.”

The complete project is expected to be finalised by early 2020.
