Project Description

The project will involve upgrading a seven kilometre section of Armadale Road between Anstey Road and Tapper Road to a four-lane dual carriageway.

Upgrades will also be made to Armadale Road's interesections with Nicholson Road and Fraser Road, and to a Principal Shared Path on the northern side of Armadale Road.


As one of the main east-west links in the Perth metropolitan transport network, Armadale Road is used by 27,500 vehicles per day and has a high crash rate attributed to its role as as a link between Perth's two southern public transport corridors and an access route to other major arterial roads — including Kwinana Freeway, and the Tonkin, South West and Albany Highways.

The project is anticipated to significantly improve safety and ease traffic congestion on Armadale Road.


The Australian Government is contributing $116 million towrds the $145 million project.


The project is expected to start in December 2017.
