Welcome to Business Armadale Chamber of Commerce
We are well into our second year of coping/surviving COVID-19. Some businesses are still struggling to keep their businesses afloat while others seemed to thrived. All 3 levels of government have poured huge amounts of money into infrastructure projects, especially into transport infrastructure. It doesn’t seem to matter where you go there are road works which add to our frustration.
Our Kelmscott business members are especially frustrated by road works which never seem to end. We know it will, but when?, has the been the ongoing question. Hopefully before the work begins on the extension of the Armadale railway to Byford. We have recently been informed that funding has been approved to elevate the railway prior to Armadale Road, creating a flyover bridge on Armadale Rd, Forrest Rd and Church Ave. This work will of course have a big impact on the local road network and the Armadale Business Centre. We have not yet been able to see graphics or plans as to how this will be accomplished.
The construction industry, it seems is also booming. Public works especially like the new Court House/Police Station are nearing completion and work will start on the new TAFE centre to be built close by.
The City of Armadale has also been expanding its building assets with the completing of the new Bedfordale Bush Fire Brigade station in Bedfordale and the Novelli Pavilion in Piara Waters. Work on the replacement of the Roleystone Theater is also underway. We have yet to hear about the public consultation Council agreed to over the future of the Jull St Mall.
12 October Andrew Hastie for a breakfast meeting and the Hon Rita Saffioti will be here on the 4th of November.
