Status: Under construction
Georgiou Group, on behalf of Main Roads, is delivering the $51 million Roe Highway and Kalamunda Road Interchange Project.
The project will see Roe Highway lowered by approximately nine metres to pass beneath Kalamunda Road, minimising noise and visual intrusion for residents in the surrounding area. Connectivity between the two roads will be retained through two roundabouts on Kalamunda Road as well as on- and off-ramps to the highway.
A Principal Shared Path (PSP) will also be constructed on the eastern side of the highway, with local connectivity provided for pedestrians and cyclists. Following an additional State Government funding commitment in March 2019, this path will extend to Berkshire Road, completing a missing link in the PSP network along Roe Highway.
The project is being delivered on behalf of MRWA in line with their current strategic direction, Keeping WA Moving. This means that when planning for and designing the project works, Georgiou must simultaneously consider social, environmental and economic matters to ensure the works are consistent with sustainability principles.
Under the IS V2.0 Rating Scheme, the Project has implemented the following sustainability target areas to plan and deliver our works sustainably; Leadership and Management, Context, Energy and Carbon, Sustainable Procurement, Resilience, Innovation, Economic, Environmental Impacts, Green Infrastructure, Resource Efficiency, Water, Ecology, Stakeholder Engagement, Legacy, Heritage and Workforce Sustainability. The pursuit of these targets aligns our approach with the internationally agreed United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to engage and commit to sustainability in infrastructure.
