Drumpellier Drive (New Lord Street)
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.
