Commuters in Perth's south will enjoy improved travel times and connectivity with the completion of the Kwinana Freeway Southbound Widening and Russell Road Upgrade.
Senator for Western Australia Chris Back today joined WA Minister for Transport Bill Marmion to mark the official opening of both projects, saying over 52,000 motorists who use the Kwinana Freeway daily now have access to three southbound lanes from Armadale Road to Russell Road. Traffic is expected to reach 75,000 by 2021.
Better traffic flows are now expected on the principal route between Perth city and the southern suburbs, Mandurah and the state's south-west, just in time for the upcoming holiday season. Additionally, the improvements are expected to reduce pressure on smaller local roads in the area that haven't been designed to handle a high volume of traffic.
The new Russell Road bridge over Kwinana Freeway has doubled the number of traffic lanes to four in each direction, improving traffic flow and catering for expanded traffic volumes expected to be accessing the new 2000 bay car park at the future Aubin Grove train station.
