East Parade, Graham Farmer Freeway and Lord Street 

The final road configuration is now in place after a 12 month construction process.

Road users are now experiencing improvements in all directions, providing significant reductions for traffic queues.

We would like to thank you for your patience while these works are undertaken to improve traffic flows and safety, by adding lanes and traffic signals as part of our Traffic Congestion Management Program.

Final green lane marking will be finished in early 2017.

 

Overview

East Parade is a significant link to Graham Farmer Freeway and provides key entry points to the Mitchell and Kwinana Freeways, as well as a direct east/west link through the city.

Traffic volumes have increased in areas surrounding Graham Farmer Freeway since the Riverside Drive diversion. This causes significant queuing in the morning peak, eastbound, at the exit from Graham Farmer Freeway to East Parade and in the afternoon peak from East Parade to Graham Farmer Freeway westbound.

To improve traffic flow and safety, the intersection of Graham Farmer Freeway and East Parade is being upgraded by adding lanes and traffic signals. 

 

Benefits

The intersection upgrade, along with complementing traffic signal timing improvements will improve traffic flow and safety throughout the intersection.
