Kwinana Freeway Northbound Widening
Russell Road to Roe Highway
Kwinana Freeway is the main road servicing the southern section of the Perth Metropolitan Area and the South West. Significant growth in traffic volumes over recent years has resulted in congestion and flow breakdown on Kwinana Freeway northbound, south of Roe Highway.
Over 75 per cent of crashes on this section of road are potentially dangerous rear-end collisions involving a higher than average proportion of heavy vehicles.
This project forms part of our overall plan to transform Mitchell and Kwinana freeways to support population growth and economic development. It involved widening Kwinana Freeway, providing an additional lane from Russell Road to Berrigan Drive and two additional lanes from Berrigan Drive to Farrington Road.
Other works included:
- Construction of noise walls where required along the western side of Kwinana Freeway
- Upgrade and realignment of the existing Principal Shared Path (PSP)
- Modifications to drainage, kerbing, surfacing, lighting, road safety barriers, service relocations, signage and line marking
