- Transformation:The contract, worth AU$191 million (€121 million), forms part of a plan to transform Perth’s road infrastructure
A consortium led by ACCIONA, together with local companies, has been awarded the contract to extend Stephenson Avenue, one of the main arteries in the City of Stirling; around 10 km north of Perth’s central business district (the capital of Western Australia) along the Mitchell Freeway.
The AU$191 million (€121 million) project, called the “Stephenson Avenue Extension”, will provide a new connection from the freeway to other major arteries, the industrial area of Osborne Park and the Westfield Innaloo Shopping Centre, as well as creating 800 jobs.
It is part of a wider plan to transform the Stirling City Centre, providing a new strategic link and opening up large tracts of currently vacant land suitable 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.
