The second stage of the Road Train Assembly Area (RTAA) at Abernethy Road in Forrestfield was completed on 23 November 2016. This $5 million project was funded by the State Government and provides 28 fully surfaced parking bays for 36.5 metre road trains to park, drop a trailer and then deliver loads to destinations on local roads.
It also provides an access shortcut between Abernethy Road and Tonkin Highway, reducing the travel distance for oversize loads by 3.7 km and greatly improving efficiency, safety and amenity for the freight industry.
The construction of the 34,000 square metres RTAA was completed in two stages:
The Abernethy Road RTAA is an important new link in the High Wide Load network and removes the majority of oversize load movements from the surrounding, mainly residential, roads in Forrestfield. This will reduce congestion on local roads and improve safety and amenity for the local community.

Gateway WA was commissioned by the State Government to construct approximately 2.6 kilometres of noise / amenity walls along the western side of Roe Highway in High Wycombe. These walls will mitigate traffic noise and provide privacy screening for local residents.
Establishment works commenced in April 2014 followed by the progressive installation of the walls from south to north. The work was completed in 2015.
Gateway WA was awarded a new package of works to construct a grade separated interchange and install noise / screen walls at the Roe Highway / Berkshire Road intersection.
The $45 million package of works have provided much needed relief at the heavily congested intersection and has eliminated one of the State's worst black spots by providing free-flow movement along Roe Highway.
Work was completed in March 2016.
