Lloyd Street Rail Corridor Grade Separation

 

Overview

On behalf of the City of Swan, we have built an underpass and associated bridges and road improvements to enhance traffic flow and safety along Lloyd Street, Midland.

The completion of this new underpass was announced on 17 November by the WA Transport Minister Dean Nalder, Federal Infrastructure Minister Warren Truss and City of Swan Mayor Mick Wainwright and is now open to traffic.

In addition to improving connectivity, this project was driven by development of the new St John of God Midland Public Hospital, which is now open and located in the area bounded by Clayton Street to the south, Lloyd Street in the east, the railway to the north and Centennial Place to the west. This new hospital requires unimpeded access via Lloyd Street for emergency vehicles.

It also complements the redevelopment and expansion of the Midland Town Centre, being led by the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority, and the proposed future extension of Lloyd Street to the Great Eastern Highway bypass.

Funding for this $80m project was provided by the State Government, the Australian Government and the City of Swan.

 

Project Scope

Key features of the project include:

  • A water resilient underpass structure under the railway, providing a dual carriageway on Lloyd Street
  • Two rail bridges over the new underpass
  • One road bridge to take Cowie Close over the new underpass
  • Modifications to the intersection of Lloyd and Clayton streets
  • New alignment of Lloyd Street with new east and west access roads
  • Relocation of utilities
  • Public art
  • Revegetation and landscaping

When the underpass opens, Railway Parade and Elgee Road will be closed at their original intersections with Lloyd Street and traffic will use service roads to access businesses in these street.
