Community feedback

Thank you to everyone who engaged with us via our consultation website - My Say Transport and by attending our community drop-in sessions held in June.

The consultation phase focusing on the access and connectivity aspects of the highway is now complete. This phase, which commenced in February 2022, invited feedback on:

  • What's important to the community through our community survey
  • The access point locations (Phase 1 interactive map)
  • Highway connectivity (Phase 2 interactive map); and
  • How the community use and experience the Kep Track.

We received feedback about a range of factors, reflecting diverse views within the community. This feedback is being considered alongside environmental, heritage, engineering, and land-use constraints and requirements to refine the Access Strategy and ultimate design concepts, which consider forecasted 2051 traffic volumes for the highway.

You can now view the ‘What we’ve heard summary’ which brings together the community insights received through this phase of the project.

Additionally, your frequently asked questions and comments are summarised in our two new Information Sheets:

Reid Highway interchanges

Expressions of interest have been called for the design and construction of the Reid Highway – Altone Road and Drumpellier Drive / Daviot Road grade separations project.

Project development for the interchanges on Reid Highway was undertaken as part of the EastLink WA Planning and Development project during 2021 and 2022.

Procurement through a tender process commenced on 4 November 2022 and will continue to contract award expected late in 2023. Highly visible site activity is likely to begin early 2024.
