Great Eastern Highway Intersection Improvements - Burswood Peninsula


Project Overview

To meet the changes and demands of key developments along the Burswood Peninsula, we are undertaking improvements along three intersections on Great Eastern Highway between Causeway and Victoria Park Drive / Burswood Road.

Downer Group in undertaking a package of works to modify the intersections on Great Eastern Highway at:

  • Craig Street / Resort Drive
  • Bolton Avenue
  • Victoria Park Drive / Burswood Road
  • Causeway

The works include:

  • Installing traffic signals
  • Adding and removing turning facilities
  • Creating right turn and through movements at Resort Drive
  • Creating right turn movements from Burswood Road to Great Eastern Highway
  • Closing the Great Eastern Highway to Victoria Park Drive right turn movement
  • Closing the Craig Street to Great Eastern Highway right turn movement
  • Adding a U-turn facility at Bolton Avenue

Upgrades are also underway on the Causeway to Great Eastern Highway slip lane.

These modifications will complement Perth Stadium’s integrated transport solutions which include expanded rail and bus infrastructure and construction of the Swan River Pedestrian Bridge. The changes will also improve access to development at Crown Towers. Each change has been designed to improve efficiency and move patrons safely on the Burswood Peninsula.


Current Status

Craig Street closure - 9 January to April 2017

From 9 January 2017, Craig Street will be closed between Burswood Road and Great Eastern Highway for approximately 10 weeks. The road wil be closed to enable excavation and road reconstruction works.

Road user access to the area will be maintained via signed detours on Great Eastern Highway and Burswood Road during this time.

Access to Great Eastern Highway: Motorists travelling from Teddington Road to access Great Eastern Highway will need to turn right at Burswood Road. You will then be able to turn right or left via new signals at Great Eastern Highway.

Access to Lathlain from Great Eastern Highway: Those who would normally use Craig Street from Great Eastern Highway, will need to turn left earlier at the new Burswood Road signals to access Lathlain businesses and residences in Lathlain.   

Great Eastern Highway at Victoria Park Drive - Right turn permanently closed

On 2 December 2016, the right-turn from Great Eastern Highway westbound into Victoria Park Drive closed permanently. Access to Victoria Park Drive is available via a new U-turn facility at Great Eastern Highway and Bolton Avenue intersection.

For further details or to ask a question about roadworks, please phone:

Rod Findlay (Project Manager for Downer Group) on 0409 108 965.

Works are underway and expected to be completed by May 2017.

To conduct all road works safely, reduced speed limits and traffic management will be in place. In addition, Perth Stadium has project-wide traffic management in place to manage the interface between general road users and construction traffic already operating through the area.

Lane closures and changing traffic conditions may be experienced through this precinct as part of the ongoing works. Road users should obey all signs and signals while moving through the area and are requested to plan their journey in advance.

Please note, the above dates are tentative and subject to change. Confirmed closures will be advertised in advance using on-site electronic message boards.
