A consortium led by Acciona and including local companies has been awarded the contract to extend Stephenson Avenue in the City of Stirling some 10km north of Perth along the Mitchell Freeway.
The AU$191 “Stephenson Avenue Extension” will provide a new connection from the Mitchell Freeway to other major arteries, the industrial area of Osborne Park and the Westfield Innaloo Shopping Centre.
The project will create 800 jobs, Acciona said.
It is part of a wider plan to transform the Stirling City Centre by opening up tracts of currently vacant land for development.
It also complements recently completed projects in the area designed to improve connectivity such as the Mitchell Freeway southbound widening works from Cedric Street to Vincent Street and Northbound Mitchell Freeway widening from Hutton Street to Cedric Street.
