Major projects

Bina Parkland After a recent public vote, the exciting new community parkland project taking shape at Princess Wallington Reserve in Balga will be known as Bina Parkland. The $6.2 million project will deliver a skate facility, multi-court sports area, walking trails, picnic areas and more next year. Work on the parkland’s junior and advanced single loop BMX tracks is nearing completion. The parkland’s skate facility will ultimately offer a beginner street section, central transition and hybrid zone as well as an open half pipe, which proved a hugely popular feature during the community consultation stage. Work on the project is set to reach completion in mid-2021. Lotterywest has contributed $2.34 million to the project via community sponsorship. Recycling Centre Balcatta redevelopment The public can look forward to a new look and more user friendly Recycling Centre Balcatta with a complete redevelopment of the facility on the way. The revamp is set to update many outdated aspects of the ageing facility. The redevelopment will reshape the facility into three distinct areas

including a new Free Community Drop-Off section to handover a variety of recycling materials as well as a container deposit scheme refund point. The Paid and Pass Community Drop-Off area will enable the community to dispose of waste using tip passes or to pay for disposal of items such as green waste and general junk. A new Waste Transfer Station will accept commercial waste and provide a transfer area for kerbside waste. The environmental approval process is underway and design work for the revamped centre is set to start later this year. Construction is expected to get underway during the 2021/22 financial year. Stephenson Avenue Extension Phase 1 works for the Stephenson Avenue Extension project are now underway. A joint project between the City, State Government and Federal Government, the extension will open large areas of land for development and reduce traffic along Scarborough Beach Road. Managed by the City of Stirling, Phase 1 works will extend Stephenson Avenue from Scarborough Beach Road through to Sarich Court in Osborne Park. It is anticipated Phase 1 works will be completed in mid-2021. The City will also deliver follow-up works to extend Sarich Court through

to Cedric Street, parallel to the freeway. Main Roads WA is working on the procurement stage of Phase 2, which will provide a new interchange at the Mitchell Freeway. It is anticipated these works will get underway in 2021, subject to all relevant approvals. The overall project forms part of a broader plan to transform the Stirling City Centre – an area bounded by Karrinyup Road, along Cedric Street and Ellen Stirling Boulevard to Scarborough Beach Road, into a strategic metropolitan centre. Much needed upgrades to the central sports clubroom facility at Des Penman Reserve in Nollamara are almost complete. State and Federal governments allocated $900,000 to the $1.7 million project, which will deliver improved amenities including two new change rooms and improved storage facilities for local clubs. Construction works are set to be completed by the end of August 2020. Hamersley Golf Course The City will start design work for redevelopment of the clubroom facility at the popular course this financial year. Construction works are scheduled to get underway in mid-2021. Des Penman Reserve (Nollamara)
