Mitchell Freeway Extension opens to traffic

The new extension of Mitchell Freeway from Burns Beach Road in Kinross to Hester Avenue in Clarkson, opened before morning peak Friday 4 August. 

The opening to traffic followed after final line marking works, safety checks and traffic management were completed on Thursday 3 August. 

This included temporary line marking at Burns Beach Road that will direct traffic onto the new section of freeway. Final line marking will be installed at a later date. Watch for updates on our project web page https://www.mainroads.wa.gov.au/BuildingRoads/Projects/UrbanProjects/mfe/Pages/Mitchell-Freeway-Ext.aspx and social media channels including https://www.facebook.com/MainRoadsWesternAustralia/  

The local community is eager to benefit from the new road network, however there are a few activities we needed to work on after opening. Specifically, ongoing lane and ramp closures at the Neerabup Road northbound on-ramp to the freeway, Hester Avenue and Wanneroo Road intersection and closures on the Principal Shared Path south of Clarkson train station.
