A new four-way signalled intersection will make it safer and quicker for heavy vehicles, including prime movers, semi-trailers and B-triples, to move within the Rockingham Industry Zone.
The estate incorporating Alloy Avenue is set to open up three land parcels zoned as strategic industrial across the 73 hectare site in Western Australia.
It is understood that these lots will provide new opportunities for businesses to get established in downstream processing and other heavy activities within the Western Trade Coast.
Development of the zone has the potential to create up to 165 construction jobs and 310 operational jobs as the nine new fully serviced general industrial lots are released at the nearby Clipper Precinct in the Rockingham Industry Zone.
Located less than 40 minutes south of the Perth CBD and within the Western Trade Coast, the 1,150ha Rockingham Industry Zone caters for a wide range of businesses including warehousing, transport and logistics, petroleum, defence and maritime-related industries.
Businesses already located within the estate include BHP Nickel West, Coogee Chemicals, Doral, Mintech, Coleman Transport and Milne Feeds.
In 2015, the Rockingham Industry Zone became the first industrial estate in WA, the largest in Australia and one of only three nationwide to achieve UDIA EnviroDevelopment certification.
It is expected to deliver an economic output of $114 million each year.
Western Australian Premier Mark McGowan, the member for Rockingham, said it played a vital role in supporting the state's economy.
“The Western Trade Coast contributes more than $15 billion a year to our bottom line," he said.
“The launch of a new industrial precinct and the delivery of key infrastructure at Rockingham Industry Zone is set to unlock important future development options for industry and create hundreds of jobs in Perth’s southern corridor.
“The new Alloy Avenue provides quicker, safer movement for heavy vehicle operators within the estate and unlocks 73.5ha of prime industrial land that will provide a pipeline of opportunity for industry in the years to come.”
