Kicking goals over Kwinana Freeway

Armadale Road to North Lake Road Bridge reach a major project milestone

Published: 07 April 2021, Updated: 08 April 2021

If you’ve travelled along Kwinana Freeway recently, you wouldn’t have been able to miss the huge bridge beams now in place. Consisting of 24 beams, each measuring 43 metres long and weighing 148 tonnes, this huge logistical challenge was made even more impressive as the freeway was kept open the entire time!

The project team have also been kicking goals at the intersection of Armadale Road, Tapper Road and Verde Drive, with bridge beams recently installed over the roundabout. The new freeway off-ramp is also taking shape, and the Solomon Road roundabout is gearing up to be the first of its kind in WA.

It’s not just major construction activities happening on-site, the team are doing their bit for the environment too. Over 50 grass trees have been extracted and replanted in the Cockburn Wetlands Precinct in Bibra Lake, and for Clean Up Australia Day the crew collected rubbish around the project area.

With so many activities currently underway, see what else we’ve been doing and how the works are progressing on our project page.
