Perth - Balcatta

Postby greengumby » Tue Apr 09, 2013 11:12 pm

Hi,

With electing Barnett in for another term I was under the impression that the PSP between Perth and Balcatta would be upgraded. Does anyone know if/when this is going to happen?

Also with the extra lane being constructed around Vincent st does anyone know if there will be a path on that side of the freeway.

Cheers

1. PSP through to Balcatta is not a priority project for DoT in the WA Bike Plan.
2. PSP on western side of Freeway is not part of the freeway widening project scope.

From earlier topic on WA elections -
viewtopic.php?f=18&t=58730&start=25

Liberals promised if re-elected funds for:
1) Kwinana Freeway (Narrows Bridge to Mount Henry Bridge - widening of the existing path at selected locations
2) Perth to Freeway railway line - new path and grade seperation from Grant Street to Fremantle
3) Glendalough to Balcatta to Mitchell Freeway
4) Completion of the Bassendean to Midland station section of Perth-Midland path
The above is based on 'A Liberal Government, if re-elected'.

Try contacting Minster of Transport and request when the funds will be made available for the Balcatta section. They were re-elected so time to deliver.
