​​​​​​​​Armadale Road to North Lake Road Bridge

  • A new bridge over Kwinana Freeway connecting to North Lake Road with upgrades to Armadale Road
  • Construction began in late-2019 and is due for completion in late-2021

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
