Whiteman Yanchep Highway is a proposed new north-south route in the North-West Corridor of Perth. The proposed highway will ease traffic pressure on Wanneroo Road and Mitchell Freeway in the future, due to Perth’s forecasted population growth.

It will eventually provide a strategic link to Mitchell Freeway in the Yanchep area by the time Perth’s population reaches 3.5 million. The road reservation may also facilitate future public transport development as it will include space for heavy rail in the median.

We conducted the Alignment Definition Study in close consultation with key stakeholders, including local government. It included transport modelling and traffic analysis, preparation of a planning design concern, and environmental impact assessment and a noise impact assessment. It is important to note this is a planning study only and no funding is currently available for construction.
