Cr Cvitan Cr Fenn Cr Miles Cr Newton UPDATE NORTH COAST WARD The City acknowledges the support of the Two Rocks community during the public consultation phase and also in helping to gain state government funding for the $400,000 project. New look for parks Members of the Two Rocks Beach Access Group (pictured with Mayor Tracey Roberts and Member for Butler John Quigley) have welcomed the new staircase. Beach access restored at Two Rocks Work was completed in February to restore staircase beach access from Sovereign Drive, providing a formal beach access point north of the Two Rocks marina. The previous staircase had to be removed in October 2016 due to beach erosion and structural damage causing public safety risks. The new structure is set back from the original location with steel piles driven into the underlying bedrock. The staircase and viewing platform has an aluminium substructure and fibre reinforced plastic decking. Several north coast ward parks will be transformed over the coming months as part of the Park Assets Renewal Program. Some parks will receive new play equipment while others will have soft-fall replaced or shade sails installed.

Netball players at Kingsway will benefit from the additional floodlighting. UPDATE SOUTH WARD Floodlights for Kingsway netball courts More than 580 teams will benefit from floodlighting that has been installed over all of the eastern netball courts at the Kingsway Regional Sporting Complex. The $500,000 project, covering construction, lighting and towers will vastly improve usability especially for training on the 30 eastern courts. On any competition day about 2,500 netballers converge on the Kingsway complex. The Wanneroo Districts Netball Association is one of the biggest in Western Australia with 90 clubs and more than 4,500 players. Meanwhile work continues on Stage 2 of the Kingsway dog exercise facilities following completion of fencing for the dedicated area. • Installation of perimeter fencing and a gate for additional small dog area annexed to the main area • Installation of dog agility equipment • Installation of water fountains and sand-play areas. Mirrabooka Avenue dual carriageway More than $2 million will be spent in the coming months for the upgrade of Mirrabooka Avenue to dual carriageway from Hepburn Avenue to Gnangara Road. Due for completion in October this year, the almost three kilometres of dualling works will significantly reduce congestion and improve road safety in Darch and Landsdale. The Mirrabooka Avenue dualling project is due for completion in October. Nearby, the implementation of the Kingsway traffic management scheme continues between Wanneroo Road and Ashdale Boulevard. The $820,000 upgrade addresses issues of pedestrian and cycle safety, traffic speed, volumes and congestion. Both projects are funded through the City’s 2017/18 Capital Works program.
