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.
