More than 500 residents turned out to the City of Stirling’s drop in day, to learn more about the exciting new developments happening as part of the Stirling City Centre project.
The Stirling City Centre (SCC) is bound by Karrinyup Road in the north, King Edward Road in the east, Odin Road in the west and Jon Sanders Drive in the south - and has long been earmarked as Perth’s second CBD.
Plans for the proposed Stirling City Centre were on display, along with information on the vison for the area and the first step towards making that vision a reality; the extension of Stephenson Avenue.
City of Stirling Mayor Mark Irwin said it was a great opportunity for the community to be reminded about the project and all that it has to offer.
“We want to keep our residents up to date and involved in our vision for the area – which is to see it transformed into an accessible, vibrant urban centre made up of residential and mixed use areas, public open space, new cycling and pedestrian infrastructure, new public transport and new roads,” he said.
Mayor Irwin said the first step in getting the SCC project underway was the construction of the Stephenson Avenue extension.
“Once complete, this will immediately relieve congestion in the area, unlock significant private and government owned land and ultimately facilitate the delivery of light rail in stage two,” he said.
“Not only will this turn the area into an accessible, vibrant urban centre that caters for the growing community, it will help connect commuters and public transport from the City through to the City’s premier tourism destination, Scarborough Beach.”
The Stephenson Avenue extension has been funded through the State and Federal Government and is expected to commence in late 2019 subject to relevant stakeholder and agency approvals.
