Albany Highway is a critical feeder road from the eastern suburbs into the city. A concept design was completed in 2005/06 following extensive consultation with residents, businesses in the area and the City of Canning.

In January 2011, Downer EDI Works Pty Ltd was awarded the $3.65 million contract to carry out the improvement works along Albany Highway, between Leach Highway and John Street in Bentley.
Albany Highway is a primary traffic distributor providing a key link for Perth's south eastern region and commercial shopping precincts in Bentley, Cannington, Maddington, Gosnells and Kelmscott, which is why it is important to continue to upgrade the highway.

The project provided a range of benefits, including:
