Project Description

The busy intersection between Thomas Road and Nicholson Road in Oakford experiences a high number of accidents and increasing congestion. The intersection is recognised as one of the most dangerous intersections in Perth, with population growth further increasing the risk of serious traffic incidents.

The project will upgrade the intersection to improve traffic flow for the growing community, reduce congestion and minimise the risk of accidents occurring.


The project will:

  • reduced congestion and freight efficiency
  • ensure forecast population-driven increases in travel demand are met
  • improve road safety


The Australian Government has committed $10 million towards the project.


The project is in planning.
