Clearing and drainage work has begun as part of the duplication of Warton Road between Ranford Road and Nicholson Road in Canning Vale.

City of Gosnells Mayor Terresa Lynes said once complete, the upgrade would allow over 16,000 cars to travel the road each day, with two lanes in each direction and a two-metre wide median strip in the centre.

“Warton Road is an important part of the local road network and this upgrade is one of the City’s key infrastructure projects this financial year, so we are very pleased for work to be underway,” she said.

“We are asking the community to allow extra time to travel this section of road or find alternative routes in the coming months, and be courteous to road workers.” The $5.4 million project is jointly funded by the City and Main Roads WA.

As part of planning for this project, the City has worked closely with the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation to minimise the impact of the construction on the nearby banksia woodland and to ensure any clearing is handled carefully.
