Members of the community were invited to Perth Primary School on Wednesday to get a closer look at the Perth Link Roads Project.
Two community drop-in sessions were held at school hall, where visitors were able to get information on various aspects of the project.
Representatives from chosen contractor VEC-Shaw were on hand to assist with inquiries.
Project director Owen Cavanough said there was plenty of interest from residents.
“We had about 100 drop-ins across the two sessions,” he said.
“Most questions were about the Haul Road we built.
“People didn’t know what it was and appreciated the understanding on how we are using locally sourced material and keeping trucks off the road.”
Funded through the state and federal governments, the project is the largest part of the Midland Highway upgrade.
It will connect the upgrades between Perth and Breadalbane, and Perth and Symmons Plain.
VEC-Shaw was announced as the preferred contractor for the project in June.
Mr Cavanough said he was happy to update the community on the progress being made, while also allaying any misconceptions about the project.
“Some had thought there was a new subdivision being built and were happy and to have this explained,” he said.
“The second most common question we had on Wednesday was about when it would be complete.
“The contract completion date is April, 2021.”
