Wanneroo Road Widening - Joondalup Drive to Flynn Drive

Upgrading Wanneroo Road to a dual carriageway from Joondalup Drive to Flynn Drive will enhance road safety and efficiency and reduce travel times. The project will also cater for long-term traffic demands generated by rapid population growth in Perth’s north-west metropolitan corridor.

The project will convert the existing single-lane road to a dual carriageway over 3.2 km in each direction that provides a north-south alternative to Mitchell Freeway and is critical for efficient industry connectivity to the Wangara and Neerabup industrial parks.

Changes to road conditions and night works on Wanneroo Road

Over a series of nights from 5 to 14 November, traffic on Wanneroo Road between Joondalup Drive and Flynn Drive will be gradually switched to newly constructed lanes to enable the existing pavement to be upgraded.

Wanneroo Road between Joondalup Drive and Flynn Drive will be closed on 11 November between 7pm and 5am to finalise the switch of traffic.

Following this, further night works will be undertaken to enable finishing works including line marking and curbing.

Road conditions may be unfamiliar. Please proceed with caution at all times, and adhere to the speed limit and signage throughout the area.

Activities you may notice will include traffic management with lane closures, signed detours and barrier relocation. To minimise disturbance to residents as much as possible, an out-of-hours noise management plan has been prepared.
