The Lloyd Street Upgrade project has made improvements to a 500 metre section of Lloyd Street between Great Eastern Highway and Clayton Street to support the Midland Health Campus, which opened in November 2015. The Lloyd Street works include:
widening the two-lane, single-carriageway to a four-lane dual-carriageway;
building a rail underpass to replace the existing at-level crossing; and
extending Cowie Close with an overpass at Lloyd Street.
The Lloyd Street Upgrade has increased road capacity to deal with increased traffic after the Midland Health Campus opens, while providing unimpeded access for emergency vehicles and facilitating access for hospital staff and delivery vehicles.
As a result, it is expected to significantly improve traffic flow and safety along Lloyd Street in Midland and neighbouring areas within the City of Swan in Western Australia.
The project is also expected to complement the Western Australian Government's proposed extension of Lloyd Street to the Great Eastern Highway Bypass, as well as expansion of the Midland Town Centre.
The Australian Government has committed $10.0 million this project in partnership with the Western Australian Government and the City of Swan.
Construction commenced in September 2014 and was completed in November 2015.
