Verita Road largest City project to date

Updated Verita Road-1 The City of Greater Geraldton's Verita Road project, otherwise known as the Karloo-Wandina Project, is the largest project the City has undertaken to date.

The current construction will facilitate the connection of Ackland St in Mt Tarcoola across to Abraham St, Karloo with a 70m long bridge spanning the Southern Transport Corridor.

The project will ultimately deliver an initial, priority release of 400 affordable housing lots through the WA Department of Housing.

The City acquired $9 million funding through the federal Government, $112 million through the Building Better Regional Cities Program from June 2012, $13.97 million from the Royalties for Regions initiative and the City put in a further $5 million.

A tender has currently gone out to build a bridge over the Southern Transport Corridor and rail line to connect Wandina with Karloo and Verita Road will eventually connect with Brand Highway at Greenough.
Works started on September 23, 2013 and the project is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
City of Greater Geraldton Site and Delivery Manager, Moneer Fates, said the project is currently on schedule and most earth and pavement works had been completed.

“The area is still a construction site and is only accessible by authorised personnel,” he said.

The City urges the public to obey the safety signs and the safety measures that have been installed on site and to refrain from accessing the site without authorisation. And remember, safety is everyone’s responsibility.
