Kwinana Freeway Southbound On-ramp from Manning Road


Short and long-term planning for Mitchell and Kwinana freeways is underway to ensure consistent and improved travel times for all road users.

Part of this work has included investigating connectivity constraints for road users travelling south from Manning Road to Kwinana Freeway.

Currently, connectivity between Kwinana Freeway and Manning Road is limited with no direct connection between the two for those heading south on the freeway.

The State and Federal Government has committed $35 million to construct a southbound on-ramp and provide direct access to the freeway.


Project scope

The project involves construction of a southbound on-ramp from Manning Road to connect with Kwinana Freeway


Key benefits

This project will:

  • Provide improved connectivity for road users travelling south on Kwinana Freeway from Manning Road
  • Resolve travel time inefficiencies and rat running through the local area
  • Reduce congestion and improve safety at the Canning Bridge and Kwinana Freeway interchange



We are committed to ensure early and ongoing communication is undertaken with relevant stakeholders. We will also plan to minimise disruption and inconvenience to road users as much as possible.


Project status

The project is currently in the development phase. Construction is anticipated to begin in mid-2019 with completion by early 2020.

Key project milestone dates will be confirmed in the coming months.
