This project sees the construction of a new bridge over the Kwinana Freeway, including the installation of free-flowing lanes on Armadale Road through to Solomon Road.

A grade-separated roundabout is also being installed at the intersection of Armadale Road and Solomon Road, and Armadale Road and Tapper Road, allowing traffic to crossover at differing heights.

Commuters can also look forward to an upgrade to the Cockburn Central Station eastern car park with 1100 bays, including ACROD and future electronic vehicle parking, motorcycle bays, bike lockers, and a kiss n’ ride drop off zone.

The project has programmed the car park works in stages to reduce inconvenience to commuters and motorists as much as possible and to ensure some car parking remains available to station patrons during construction.

Benefits

  • Ease traffic congestion at Cockburn Central Station and Cockburn Gateway Shopping Centre
  • Reduce congestion and provide additional traffic capacity
  • Improve access to Kwinana Freeway and Cockburn Central Station

    A new temporary roundabout has now been installed. Please drive carefully and pay attention to the changed road conditions.

  • Knock Place closure and Cockburn Central Station eastern car park upgrade

    As part of the Armadale Road to North Lake Road Bridge project, a long-term closure of Knock Place and Hutt Link is required in order to progress works for the construction of the new intersection at Armadale Road and Solomon Road, and to reconfigure the existing Cockburn Central Station eastern car park.

    • Hutt Link closure November 2020 to project completion late 2021
    • Solomon Road traffic change September 2020 to mid-2021
      • No right turn from Armadale Road

      • Access unchanged from Armadale Road
      • November 2020 replacement road accessible from Cockburn Central station car park to commercial precinct, see purple arrows in the map above.
  • Armadale Road, between Kwinana Freeway and Verde Drive

    A temporary pedestrian and cyclist path between Freshwater Drive and Tapper Road is now open and access to Cockburn Central Train Station from Armadale Road is now available via Solomon Road. Path signage is in place.

  • Tapper Road, between Armadale Road and Lydon Boulevard

    An extended road closure of Tapper Road is scheduled from 7pm Sunday 10 January through to Tuesday 9 February 2021 to facilitate extensive pavement works.

    Signed detours will be in place. Road users are encouraged to plan ahead and allow additional travel time.

  • Kwinana Freeway northbound, between Beeliar Drive and Berrigan Drive

    Reduced to two lanes with speed restrictions in place from Sunday 13 December through to late January 2021 to facilitate bridge beam installation works on the western side of Kwinana Freeway.

    Night closures will also take place between Sunday 10 January to Thursday 14 January 2021 from 6:30pm to 5am.

    Signed detours will be in place for northbound vehicle movements. Please plan ahead and allow additional travel time where possible.

  • Beam installation works

    Significant works will occur throughout December 2020 and January 2021 to install beams on the new bridge over Kwinana Freeway, connecting North Lake Road to Armadale Road.

    The new bridge will link the suburbs of Cockburn Central to Jandakot and provide alternative access for road users wishing to enter and exit Kwinana Freeway.

    Beam installation works will take place in phases throughout late December and January.

    The western beam lift, which is scheduled for January, will require full nightly closures of Kwinana Freeway northbound, between Beeliar Drive and Berrigan Drive.

    These closures will take place between Sunday 10 January to Thursday 14 January 2021 from 6:30pm to 5am. Signed detours will be in place for northbound vehicle movements.

    To allow for the bridge beams to be safely lifted over the train line, a part closure of the Mandurah Line is also required between Perth and Rockingham stations.

    These nightly closures will take place between Sunday 10 January to Thursday 14 January 2021.

    Train replacement bus services will operate while train services are cancelled. For more details, including the closure times and operation of train replacement services please visit: transperth.wa.gov.au

    We strongly advise road users to consider alternative routes and travel options during this period. Please plan ahead and allow additional travel time where possible.
