The Manjimup Shire Council has won an award for its outstanding public work projects.
The annual Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia (WA) Awards for Excellence recognise individual contributions to the growth and wellbeing of the institute, excellence in significance engineering projects and innovative practices in traffic safety management carried out by the public works sector and/or local government.
The Shire of Manjimup won the Best Public Works Project Greater Than $5M Award (Regional) for town centre revitalisation works carried out at the southern entry carpark, Ipsen Street reopening and slip lanes, Ralston Street, the new Blechynden Street/South Western Highway roundabout and the Graphite and Perup roads intersection upgrade.
“The shire is delighted to have won the award for this category,” Manjimup shire president Paul Omodei said.
“The award acknowledges the best public works project that delivers the greatest benefit for the community.
“This is a great achievement for Manjimup, given last year’s winner for the same category was the Busselton Foreshore upgrade project.”
