They might have to bite the bullet and sink the lines below William Street, regardless of the work that has been. Worst case, leave it until it's the last part of the works that need to be carried out.

Caledonian Ave serves as a run through in light of Seventh Avenue. Closing it will put HUGE pressure on that particular route forcing even more carnage on Guildford Road which is already bad enough at peak hours.SO on the cheap just doesnt work with most of these.A right hand turn from Railway Parade is the least desirable movement because they can simply use the seventh avenue bridge as an alternative and indeed some do. In any case its one crossing that on the governments radar with FAL as maybe the Ashfield one too but not as critical as its before FAL.

Should they not already have a business case before they allocated $415 Million in the budget towards it?

Have any of you ever heard of a document called the Metropolitan Region Scheme. It's the big zoning map for Perth. The road reserve widens significantly at the crossing to allow a new bridge to be build north-west of the existing William Street crossing. The government already owns the land south of the bridge and owns most of the properties with the exception of the Caltex and some houses on Railway Parade. Look at an aerial and you will see the huge amount of land that is vacant where William Street will be realigned.

Similarly at Hamilton Street you can see how the units south of Hamilton Street splay away from the road - that's because a road widening requirement has been in place for anumber of years, and the government already owns a number of the lots in the area - hence all the vacant land.

I mean, do people actually think Mark McGowan came up with all these ideas for new lines and crossings etc? They've been planned for years under all sorts of governments.

To some extent, I do believe that nobody (on this thread) has actually referred to the MRS when making these comments. But I guess maybe it never crossed anyone's minds that previous governments may have already planned for this stuff? Just a thought, please don't take offence, but when making comments referring to planning, do cross-check with official documents.

Have to agree with you 100% on this one. Especially the last statement.

Road reserves exist everywhere throughout the Metro for projects like this and more. People are blind to the obvious in most cases.

Can't see the road for a lack of trying.

Maryland’s should be a elevated station and flyover for Caledonian and lights at Falkirk should be relocated to Caledonian/ Guildford.

Actually think they will be able to do it provided Western Power switches on their lights when they have time...

The northern part is the most complete and now its just awaiting final asphalt seals on a lot of this area.Indeed now they have started putting in the landscaping up there.Trees and shrubs went in last week. Kerbs are done and all the lights have been installed already. This is for the end of the Tonkin Highway where it joins Great Northern. The roads to the south are still being finished off as regards bridges.
Muchea South Road was having a big bridge deck pour today and over weekend.No joining roads have been finished yet but not too far away . Perhaps October for Stock Road and the other half of Neaves Road so they can close off Warbrook.The Highway is completely finished as far as Maralla Road and 70-80% up to Stock Road.

What’s happening at Orrong and Francisco? Drove past earlier and heaps of mature trees in the median have gone.

Orrong road? Clearing a few trees now as part of a small intersection upgrade makes it easier to put a freeway though in the future...
