​​​​Armadale Road to North Lake Road Bridge

  • A new bridge over Kwinana Freeway connecting to North Lake Road with upgrades to Armadale Road
  • Construction is expected to begin in late-2019 and is due for completion in late-2021
  • Ease congestion and improve access

Overview

Construction will ease congestion at Cockburn Central Station and the Cockburn Gateway Shopping Centre. The project will also provide a direct link between Armadale and North Lake roads, improve access to Kwinana Freeway and support residential and commercial expansion in Cockburn and Armadale.

The project also involves the construction of free flowing lanes on Armadale Road through Solomon Road and Tapper Road intersections with grade separated roundabouts introduced to retain full connectivity.

Other works will include:

  • North-facing on and off ramps at Kwinana Freeway.
  • Collector-distributor roads on both sides of the Kwinana Freeway from Berrigan Drive to Armadale Road
  • Modifications to the existing North Lake Road and Midgegooroo Avenue signalised intersection.

Our early works program will continue over the coming months with construction set to get underway by the end of the year. Open the latest Project Update to find out more about how this project will improve journey times for residents in Perth’s southern corridor and the role the community has played in shaping the design.

Contract awarded

A program of congestion relief in Perth's southern suburbs has reached another major milestone with a contract awarded for delivery of the project - Read the Media Statement .

The Armadale Access Alliance - a consortium comprising Laing O'Rourke and BG&E, in partnership with us, will deliver a $146 million contract following a competitive tendering process.
