​​Wanneroo Road Widening

  • Widening Wanneroo Road between Joondalup Drive and Flynn Drive
  • Construction started in 2017 and lanes opened to motorists in April.
  • Enhance safety, efficiency and reduce travel times.


The widening of Wanneroo Road is complete - see the finalProject Update​ for more information.

The $31 million project has seen 3.2km of dual carriageway built within the road reserve to reduce congestion and enhance road safety. More than 26,000 vehicles a day are now taking advantage of the new dual lanes and upgraded intersections at Golf Links Drive and Carramar Road. Journeys are noticeably more efficient and reliable in this area for northern suburbs residents and workers.​​


  • Remove existing pinch point of Wanneroo Road to alleviate current congestion
  • Accommodate increasing volumes of traffic generated by population growth and industrial development in the North West corridor of the Perth Metropolitan area
  • Support ongoing development of Wanneroo Road as a major north-south alternative to Mitchell Freeway
  • Enhance road safety and efficiency and reduce travel times
