Planning and Development

We provide support to assist you with your property development and road access needs.

Are you a developer, traffic consultant, local government or in some way involved in property development in the Perth metropolitan area? Do you or will you be looking to progress developments adjacent to a State road?

We are responsible for ensuring the safe and efficient operation of the state road network and consider the following factors when a development might affect a road:

  • Traffic noise
  • Driveway access
  • Road safety
  • Traffic efficiency 
  • Impacts on the future road network
  • Modifications to traffic signals

Before embarking on this process, if your development involves our network in some way, we encourage you to meet with us before pursuing the process further. We can then provide you with all of the relevant information you'll need to progress your development. 

Complete the applicable form below, then send to the specified email address:

In order to gain or modify a driveway access to a Main Roads Classified Road, applicants are required to apply for approval. Please complete the form below in order for our team to make an assessment.

For any developments impacting a local road, or if you're not sure what part of the road network will be impacted, contact your local government in the first instance. 

Once your development is approved, you will need further approval from us if the works will take place inside the road reserve. This is for the safety of workers and drivers during construction. Read more about third party works on the Works by Others page. 

To help us improve our service to you, please contact us on planninginfo@mainroads.wa.gov.au with any suggestions on what information we can provide and how we can make the process easier.

For regional developments, please contact your nearest Main Roads office.
