The next event that the Retired Engineers Group is hosting, we will hear and see the details of a major billion-dollar project currently being undertaken by the Main Roads Department of WA. Some of us were fortunate to see the beginning of the construction of this project just over two years ago. The project - NorthLink WA - is now almost complete and it will provide freeway standard travel between Morley and Muchea. At the southern end, the NorthLink WA project links up with Tonkin Highway in Morley. In a first for Western Australia the project will provide a freeway to freeway interchange at the junction of Reid and Roe Highways with Tonkin Highway.
Our first stop will be at Engineers Australia in West Perth for a presentation by Mr Rob Arnott, the Main Roads Senior Project Director in charge of the NorthLink WA project. After the presentation Rob will travel with us on the coach and will discuss further details as we travel north along the path of the project from Morley through to Muchea..
Join us and be among the first to see and travel along this major infrastructure project which has been quietly proceeding over the last two years. As well as the NorthLink WA project Rob will also discuss the current project that tenders are being called for – the upgrade of the section of Tonkin Highway between Great Eastern Highway and Guildford Road (Tonkin Gap Project). When this is completed there will be a freeway standard road between Muchea to south of Perth airport.
Lunch: The Stringybark Restaurant and Winery in Chittering. There will be a roast lunch and dessert with tea and coffee.
Orchard Visit: After lunch, we will briefly visit the Golden Grove Orchard in Lower Chittering where you will have the option of purchasing some citrus fruit if you wish.
Coach Travel: We will be travelling by coach and the coach will stop at both Perth (8.45am) and Burswood (9am) to pick up participants. More details will be in your confirmation email.
