Civic Place to Reid Highway Pedestrian and Cycle Path
The new section of high standard path will be built on the eastern side of Mitchell Freeway, linking Civic Place in Stirling to Reid Highway in Balcatta.
Construction will primarily be undertaken in the existing freeway reserve, next to the southbound lanes. The new path will include local connections as well as a new 80 metre underpass at Karrinyup Road.
The path construction project is funded under the Department of Transport’s PSP Expansion Program 2017-2022.
As there are future plans to widen the freeway southbound in this area, we are also funding the construction of noise walls as part of this project. The walls will be built adjacent to residential areas between Karrinyup Road and Erindale Road on the east side of Mitchell Freeway next to the project. They are likely to be situated along the rear property boundaries. The walls will help reduce noise experienced by residents living near the freeway.
Clearing and early service relocations have commenced.
Construction of the path and noise walls is expected to start in early 2022 and should be completed by late 2022.
Construction of the underpass at Karrinyup Road will require traffic management, which includes restricting traffic to one-way on Karrinyup Road. Bus access will be maintained in both directions to provide access to the nearby Karrinyup Shopping Centre. Detours will be in place during any closures.
