"The overpass is proof that local action leads to results" said Ms Freeman.
"Locals have been campaigning for this overpass for nearly a decade. The Balga Action Group, led by Alan Stafford has collected signatures on petitions, talked to locals in shopping centres, written letters, and made sure that local Members of Parliament knew that this was an issue that matters to the local community."
"Local action got results and I'm really proud to have been a part of that" said Janine.
Between 1999 and 2009 there were 400 crashes at the intersection, resulting in four fatalities and 38 serious injuries.
