Cars driving along Tonkin Highway

Planning and development is well underway to upgrade Tonkin Highway south of Roe Highway. The project includes widening Tonkin Highway from four to six lanes and upgrading the intersections at Hale Road, Welshpool Road and Kelvin Road, improving safety and reducing delays along this heavily congested route.

Initially, our planning determined that a bridge would be built to take Tonkin Highway over Hale Road with no access ramps to and from Hale Road (Hale Road would still be open for local traffic travelling between Forrestfield and Wattle Grove).

However, following community feedback, we re-examined the options and the design was changed earlier this year to include north facing ramps. This means you will be able to get on and off Tonkin Highway at Hale Road if you are travelling to and from the city (80 per cent of traffic using Hale Road to access Tonkin Highway now is travelling North.
