Armadale Road Upgrade - Tapper Road to Anstey Road
The project will upgrade the 6.9 km section of Armadale Road from Tapper Road to Anstey Road. This is the last section of the single carriageway between Kwinana Freeway and Armadale.
The $145 million project, funded by the Commonwealth and State Government, will upgrade will the road from one suited to a semi-rural environment to an urban road able to service the increasing growth and development in the area.
Armadale Road is a strategic freight route connecting the South West and the South East corridor. It is one of the main east-west links within the Perth metropolitan transport network. The link passes through industrial areas, rural subdivisions, recently developed and planned residential subdivisions and connects Armadale sub-regional centre and Albany Highway, forming part of the route to the Fremantle Port.
Current traffic counts show that 27,000 vehicles use Armadale Road between Tapper Road and Warton Road, while 18,000 vehicles per day use Warton Road to Anstey Road.
The project will provide additional lane capacity to improve safety and operational efficiencies in the area, along with better access and traffic flow.
Construction is well underway with intersection improvements taking shape at Liddelow and Nicholson Roads. To find out more about the status of the project and the changes the community will see over the next 15 months, please see our latest newsletter.
Lane closures will recommence on Armadale Road during August and September. Night work activities include signage relocation, barrier installation, line marking and removing the existing road medians. Dates and locations will be confirmed through regular email updates and on this page.

To improve safety, and in consultation with the City of Cockburn and local community, the intersection of Armadale Road and Liddelow Road will be reduced to left turn movements only as of 9pm on 21 May 2018.
No right turns will be permitted at the intersection during the construction of the Liddelow Road and Armadale Road roundabout, due for completion in late 2019.

No cyclist access on Armadale Road between Ghostgum Avenue and Anstey Road
Road conditions have changed on Armadale Road, including steel barrier installation and reduced lane widths to 3.2 metres.
Cyclists are prohibited from travelling on Armadale Road between Ghostgum Avenue and Anstey Road. This will ensure the safety of cyclists during construction works.
