The Western Australian Government has announced it has awarded the $22 million contract for road and infrastructure works at Perth’s Riverside project to Broad Construction.


Planning Minister John Day said the next stage of works would stabilise ground conditions and ensure the site was ready for future public spaces and development.


“The Riverside project will create new connections and cater for the growing number of people who will live, work and socialise in the area,” Mr Day said.


“When complete, Riverside will deliver more than 4,000 new dwellings for 7,000 new residents, and 90,000sqm of retail and commercial space for 6,000 new workers in the area. 


Works include site stabilisation and road works that will realign the existing slip lane from Hay Street to the Causeway; the construction of a new two-way road between Trinity College and the WACA; and re-opening Hale Street to private vehicles and two-way traffic.
