JOONDALUP DRIVE–WANNEROO ROAD INTERSECTION —
561. Hon COLIN TINCKNELL to the minister representing the
Minister for Transport:
I refer to the construction of an
overpass bridge at the intersection of Joondalup Drive and Wanneroo Road. Justification for this overpass has been
attributed to a request made by the City of Wanneroo to the state government.
(1) Can the minister please provide
said request from the City of Wanneroo?
(2) Has a business
case been put forward to the government or the City of Wanneroo; and, if so,
can the minister provide the business case?
STEPHEN DAWSON replied:
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question. There are no numbers in the question that I have,
so the answer is in a block.
The state government's
decision to commit funding to the Wanneroo Road and Joondalup Drive interchange
project was the result of a commitment made prior to the last state election.
This project is a priority of both the state and commonwealth governments. The
federal government provided an 80 per cent funding contribution to this project
through the redirection of Perth Freight Link funding.
