Project Description

This project involves widening the Kwinana Freeway southbound from two to four lanes between the Roe Highway and Armadale Road and from two to three lanes from Armadale Road to south of Russell Road. This project also includes improvements to freeway entrance and exit ramps, provision of three emergency stopping areas and widening of the road over rail bridge at Jandakot.


Delivery of the project will reduce congestion and improve travel times on the Kwinana Freeway, which is a major arterial road servicing the southern part of the Perth metropolitan area and connecting Mandurah and the south-west region of Western Australia to Perth.


The Australian Government is contributing $35.8 million (*which includes $16.72 million from the $499 million paid to WA as a result of a GST revenue shortfall in 2015-16) towards the $65.65 million project.


Construction commenced in September 2014.  Section One (Roe Highway to Armadale Road) was completed in August 2015 and Section Two (Armadale Road to Russell Road) was completed in December 2016.  The full project was comleted in December 2016.
