The Great Northern Highway is a national freight route with high volumes of light and heavy vehicles. The intersection at the Great Northern Highway, Apple Street and Coondaree Parade in Upper Swan is the primary access point for local residents and businesses and is currently close to its maximum utilisation rate.
Currently the intersection is an un-signalised offset four-way intersection that does not have sufficient capacity for the future traffic flows from the surrounding residential and industrial uses. The increase in vehicles at the intersection will constrain freight movements, resulting in time delays, reduced productivity and increased road safety risks.
The project will upgrade the intersection of the Great Northern Highway, Apple Street and Coondaree Parade in Upper Swan.
The project will:
- Improve travel times and improve safety for all road users
- Increase transport infrastructure capacity
The Australian Government has committed $7 million towards the project.
The project commenced construction in July 2021, and is expected to be complete in early 2022.
