Planning for upgrades to Anketell Road to create a future road freight corridor to Kwinana.

Anketell Road   <em>Upgrade </em>

What's Happening

Planning is now underway to upgrade Anketell Road between Leath Road and Kwinana Freeway as part of the future Anketell Thomas Road Freight Corridor.

There is currently no schedule or funding for construction of upgrades to Anketell Road.

However, as part of the planning process, an early concept road design, which includes the interface with a future rail connection west of Rockingham Road has been developed to inform further consultation with stakeholders and the environmental assessment process.

The concept includes:
  • Upgrading Anketell Road to four lanes between Kwinana Freeway and Leath Road in Kwinana.
  • New Interchanges at Armstrong Road and Rockingham Road.
  • Upgrading intersections / changes at Mandogalup Road, McLaughlan Road (left in and left out), Abercrombie Road and Leath Road.
  • Upgrading Rockingham Road near Anketell Road.

Main Roads will refer the Anketell Road Upgrade – Leath Road to Kwinana Freeway to the State’s Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) in March 2024, followed by a referral to the Commonwealth environmental regulator - the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water (DCCEEW).

 The EPA advertised the Anketell Road Upgrade (Leath Road to Kwinana Freeway) proposal for public comment between 18 – 24 March 2024.
At this initial stage, comment is sought on whether or not the EPA should assess the proposal and, if so, what level of assessment is considered appropriate. Visit the EPA website here.
