A information session will be held at Frye Park on February 20.

Interested in finding out what the notoriously busy Denny Avenue intersection will look like once the level crossing has been lifted?

Curious members of the public are welcome to attend an information session later this month.

Attendees will be able to speak one-on-one with experts on a variety of topics including the next steps associated with the project, which involves replacing the Denny Avenue level crossing by raising the railway and creating a road underpass at Davis Road.

Removing the crossing will improve the safety of drivers, cyclists and pedestrians at the crossing with safer connections while also  maintaining an important east-west connection between Albany Highway and Railway Avenue.

Member for Armadale Tony Buti said the Metronet project will act as a catalyst to revitalise the precinct around the site and will improve liveability in the area.

“As well as a boost to the town centre we will also see a much easier run across the rail line for school drop offs at Kelmscott Senior High School,” he said.

Minister for Transport Rita Saffioti encouraged everyone to attend the session.

“Denny Avenue is a dangerous level crossing and we know frustrated drivers take huge risks at this site by trying to beat the boom gate and crossing the tracks while gates are down or descending,” she said.

The information session will be held at Frye Park on February 20 from 4pm to 7pm.
