There are three new road projects planned for Perth’s northern corridor as part of the Commonwealth and State Government’s $2.3 billion investment in road and rail infrastructure.
The projects will remove bottlenecks from Wanneroo Road, leading to safer and more efficient journeys.
Wanneroo Road Widening – Joondalup Drive to Flynn Drive
This involves converting the existing single-lane road to a dual carriageway over 3.2km in each direction to remove a pinch point on Wanneroo Road, reduce travel times, provide an improved north-south alternative to Mitchell Freeway and enhance access to the Wangara and Neerabup industrial parks.
Wanneroo Road and Joondalup Drive Interchange
A grade separation with Joondalup Drive passing over Wanneroo Road will remove congestion at the sixth most congested intersection in the Metropolitan area and significantly reduce journey times for road users.
Wanneroo Road and Ocean Reef Road Interchange
A grade separation with Wanneroo Road passing over Ocean Reef Road will address congestion at the seventh most congested intersection in the Metropolitan area, providing major safety benefits and supporting the growth of future traffic volumes.
