Project update

Upcoming night works

Night works will take place intermittently between 7pm to 7am, Monday to Saturday, from 27 February until end April 2019.

As part of the works, lane closures and speed reductions will affect the areas from Burns Beach Road roundabout to Cheriton Drive, and from Wanneroo Road and Joondalup Drive intersection to Clarkson Avenue.
See the Construction Update for more information.

Construction works in early 2019

Works have started on clearing kerbs, pavement and vegetation within the barricaded areas. Other Stage One works will include diversion of underground services as well as installation of new drainage pits and pipes. Once the redundant drainage is removed, work crews will start constructing the new pavement and then begin asphalting, kerbing and linemarking to form the new road alignment.

These works will be undertaken during day shift, 7am to 7pm Monday to Saturday, with some occasional night works required for tie-in works. See the Project Update for more information.
