Wanneroo Road Widening

​Joondalup Drive to Flynn Drive



Upgrading Wanneroo Road to a dual carriageway from Joondalup Drive to Flynn Drive will enhance road safety and efficiency and reduce travel times. The project will also cater for long-term traffic demands generated by rapid population growth in Perth’s north-west metropolitan corridor.

The project will convert the existing single-lane road to a four-lane dual carriageway over 3.2 km that provides a north-south alternative to Mitchell Freeway and is critical for efficient industry connectivity to the Wangarra and Neerabup industrial parks.


Project scope

The key project elements are:

  • Intersection upgrades at Golf Links Drive and Carramar Drive (seagull island design);
  • Construction of 3.2km of dual carriageway within the road reserve;
  • Noisewalls along the eastern side of Wanneroo Road between Joondalup Drive to north of Carramar Drive, Carramar; and
  • Drainage, retaining walls and landscaping.

Construction start: late 2017 (estimated)
