Murdoch Drive Connection
An extension of Murdoch Drive south from Farrington Road to connect with Roe Highway and Kwinana Freeway makes up the $100m Murdoch Drive Connection Project.
The last ten years of planning will culminate in reduced congestion, improved access to Fiona Stanley Hospital and allow Murdoch Activity Centre (MAC) meet its economic potential as a major employment and research centre.
