The project will involve upgrading a 6.96 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. A Principal Shared Path will also be constructed on the northern side of Armadale Road, to separate pedestrians and cyclists from vehicles.
As one of the main east-west links in the Perth metropolitan transport network, Armadale Road is used by 27,500 vehicles per day. It has a high crash rate attributed to its role as as a link between Perth's two southern public transport corridors and as 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 has committed $116 million towards the $145 million project.
Construction commenced in March 2018 and is anticipated to be complete in late 2019.
