Leach Highway and Welshpool Road Interchange

A new interchange will be constructed at Perth's most dangerous intersection, set to start in 2021.
Leach Highway and <em>Welshpool Road Interchange</em>

We are planning to build a new interchange at Perth’s most dangerous and second most congested intersections in Welshpool.

The project will deliver:

  • a new bridge taking Leach Highway over Welshpool Road to create a grade-separated interchange
  • duplicate the existing Leach Highway bridge over the railway
  • a shared path along Leach Highway from Sevenoaks Street to Orrong Road
The project will support the east-west freight link connecting Fremantle with the Kewdale and Welshpool industrial area. It will also provide access to many industries and businesses, as well as connecting the residential suburbs of East Cannington and Queens Park with Victoria Park via Albany Highway.
