​​Drumpellier Drive ​​​(New Lord Street)

A new dual carriageway connects Reid Highway and Gnangara Road, removing a major bottleneck.

This project relieved pressure on the existing Lord Street, a single carriageway road used by approximately 14,000 vehicles a day. The southbound approach to Marshall Road roundabout is a well-known congestion hotspot, with commuters experiencing queues of up to 2.5 km during morning peak hour.

As part of the construction for New Lord Street, we built:

  • A dual carriageway road between Reid Highway and Gnangara Road, located approximately 200 metres west of the existing Lord Street in the former Perth-Darwin National Highway alignment
  • New roundabouts at the intersections of New Lord Street with Park Street and Youle-Dean Road
  • A shared path will improve access to Whiteman Park for cyclists and pedestrians
  • A new bus station and bus priority measures.
