As the population of Piara Waters increases, so too does the surrounding infrastructure that will support the growing community
It’s hard to believe that before 2007, Piara Waters didn’t exist. As part of the suburb of Forrestdale, it was home to large rural blocks with no schools or shops.
Now Piara Waters is a hive of activity with schools, shops, parks and homes built over the past 10 years, but there will be more coming. Here’s a list of the short term changes happening in and around the suburb:
- Primary school expansion: Aspiri Primary is currently open to Kindy and Pre-Primary, but as of 2019 will cater up to year 6.
- Secondary school expansion: Harrisdale High School is currently open to years 7 and 8, but will expand each year and will be completely open by 2022.
- Shopping centre expansion: Harrisdale Shopping Centre will expand to include more commercial and retail space.
- New parks: Many green landscapes will take shape including a designated dog park.
- Armadale Road upgrade: The widening of Armadale Road has commenced and is due to open in the first half of next year. Secondary stages of the upgrade will see a new freeway connection between Armadale Road and Berrigan Drive.
- Metronet: Construction is expected to start in 2019 on Thornlie-Cockburn Link including 2 new stations.
- New aquatic centre: The existing Armadale Aquatic Centre has closed and work has commenced on the new $26 million redevelopment.
- North Lake Road Bridge: Construction will start on a new bridge and freeway entrance following in 2019-2021.
These changes will ensure that Piara Waters residents get the best of their lifestyle.
