Wanneroo MP Paul Miles is calling on the State Government to finish the job and dual Wanneroo Road, from Joondalup Drive through to Flynn Drive, whilst Main Roads is already realigning Flynn Drive and Wanneroo Road and upgrading the intersection of Joondalup Drive and Wanneroo Road.
“Being one of the fastest growth corridors in the State, solving traffic congestion and improving road safety has never been more important for the northern corridor” Mr Miles said.
“This is one of the highest priorities for my electorate of Wanneroo, being one of the most northern based electorates in the metropolitan region”.
With the realignment of Flynn Drive and the upgrades occurring at the intersection of Joondalup Drive and Wanneroo Road Mr Miles believes that it would be wasteful of the State Government not to dual this section of Wanneroo Road at the same time.
“If this is not done I believe that the benefits of these fantastic improvements will simply be wasted by commuters still coming to a stop as they merge into a single land straight after Joondalup Drive.
“Subsequently I have written to the Minister for Transport, the Hon Bill Marmion MLA, requesting that he investigate the situation with a view to dualling Wanneroo Road from Joondalup Drive to Flynn Drive in order to improve traffic flow and safety”, Mr Miles finished with.
