​Murdoch Drive Connection

An extension of Murdoch Drive south from Farrington Road to connect with Roe Highway and Kwinana Freeway makes up the $100 million Murdoch Drive Connection project. The last ten years of planning will improve access and journey times to Fiona Stanley Hospital for visitors, patients and emergency vehicles, and allow Murdoch Activity Centre (MAC) to meet its economic potential as a major employment and research centre. 

The project will relieve peak time congestion on Murdoch Drive, South Street and Kwinana Freeway, and provide shorter, more predictable journey times for those who live and work in the Murdoch Precinct. Connectivity for pedestrians and cyclists will be improved between the end of Roe Highway and Farrington Road / Murdoch Drive.

It complements other new road projects including Kwinana Freeway Northbound Widening from Russell Road and Roe Highway and the development of Perth’s first “Smart Freeway” between Roe Highway and Narrows Bridge.
