BMD has been awarded the contract for the construction of stage two of Cecil Avenue East, as part of the City of Canning’s City Centre Regeneration Program in Western Australia.
The Canning City Centre Regeneration Program is a 10 year, $76 million package that aims to turn the area into Perth’s Southern CBD.
The second stage of works aims to transform the area between Lake Street and Sevenoaks Street with high quality paving, integrated artworks and other landscape finishes.
As part of the upgrade, the BMD works will include site preparation and demolition, construction of roads footpaths and paved areas, traffic signal upgrade works, electrical works, landscaping and irrigation improvement works, street furniture, drainage and hydraulic works and communications works.
Additional works for Cecil Avenue East include dedicated bus lanes which can also be used by cyclists and taxis, wider footpaths for a pedestrian-friendly street and smart infrastructure including technology for augmented reality, free Wi-Fi, CCTV, public mobile charging stations and interactive street and furniture lighting.
These works follow on from the first stage of Cecil Avenue West which was completed in 2019. This included the completion of Service Relocations, which will allow for the major road and landscape works to commence.
Works for stage two will commence this month and is estimated to be completed by late January 2023.
