Mitchell Freeway Principal Shared Path

​Erindale Road to Reid Highway

We have now completed construction of a new 1.2 km section of Principal Shared Path (PSP) along the western side of Mitchell Freeway in Gwelup, linking Erindale Road and Reid Highway underpasses.

This $3.3 million project has been funded by the Department of Transport as part of the Western Australian Bicycle Network (WABN) Plan 2014-2031.

The project started in May 2014 and was completed and opened to the public on 24 October 2014.  The completed path includes two 1.5 m lanes, sealed shoulders, lighting, retaining walls and safety barriers.  It provides a safer and more direct route for path users, especially during peak periods, by reducing the need for interaction between pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.

Due to the local terrain, several retaining structures have been constructed but the grade has been limited to three percent to comply with mobility standards.  Some clearing within the freeway road reserve was required for this project but has been kept to the minimum.
