CPB Contractors is working to set-up project site offices, locate services and realign traffic lanes during January and February to enable work on the rail bridge to begin.
From 30 January, Nicholson Road will be reduced to two traffic lanes in each direction during peak periods, additional lane closures will be in place at night (subject to approvals) and during the day at off-peak traffic times.
Plan your journey
Road and bridge works may cause delays and we request road users to plan their journey, allow extra travel time, and if possible avoid using Nicholson road. Road users should be aware that traffic management will remain on the road at all times.
The following roadworks will be in place to facilitate this project:

The Nicholson Road (bridge) Over Rail project includes road and bridge construction on Nicholson Road between Bannister Road, Canning Vale and Yale Road / Garden Street, Thornlie.
The new road bridge will take Nicholson Road over the Midland to Fremantle Freight Railway and remove the level railway crossing, which is used by about 30 trains per day. Nicholson Road carries about 44,000 vehicles per day and the boom gates, which are down for two minutes per train, interrupt traffic flows on Nicholson Road for up to 60 minutes per day.
The new traffic bridge will enhance traffic operations, economic efficiencies and safety by permanently removing the interface between the road and railway line.
The project is jointly funded by the Australian and Western Australian governments.
The works include:
As the project will impact adjacent residents, a Construction Reference Group has been established to:
