Contractor close to completion of $1.02B NorthLink WA

The Western Australian Government is calling for proposals from industry to design and build the ‘congestion-busting’ Wanneroo Road and Joondalup Drive Interchange.The NorthLink WA’s third and final section from Ellenbrook to Muchea is progressing towards completion.

CPB Contractors and Main Roads WA are now completing the final components of Western Australia’s biggest-ever road initiative.

The final section is now set to open in early February 2020.

To accomodate works on local roads at the Neaves Road Connection and the construction of the Principal Shared Path, the opening date has been moved from the end of 2019 to the February.

CPB Contractors are also working to finalise livestock fencing, traffic barriers and lighting to ensure the new highway is as safe as possible upon opening.

The northern and final section includes a dual carriageway between Maralla Road and Muchea, interchanges at Stock Road, Neaves Road and Brand Highway, a deviation at Brand Highway and flyovers at Muchea South Road and the railway at Ellenbrook.

Federal Minister for Population, Cities and Urban Infrastructure Minister Alan Tudge said the delivery of the $1.02 billion NorthLink WA initiative – $820 million from the Federal Government and $204 million from the WA Government – is the result of years of co-operative work.

WA Minister for Transport and Planning Rita Saffioti said a massive amount of work has gone into NorthLink WA since it started and many Western Australians will benefit from this new addition to the road network.

“The slight delay in opening will ensure all the road safety features are in place at the time of opening and avoid inconvenience to the traveling public over the Christmas and New Year holiday period,” Ms. Saffioti said.
