Detour options

  • Karrinyup Road off-ramp closure

    As part of the Mitchell Freeway Pedestrian and Cyclist Path – Civic Place to Reid Highway Project, Main Roads is constructing an 80-metre underpass at Karrinyup Road.
    To enable safe construction of the underpass, the Karrinyup Road off-ramp from Mitchell Freeway southbound will be closed for up to 20 weeks. The closure is expected to be implemented from mid-June to mid-November.

    Traffic impacts

    In addition to the ramp closure, road users will face the following restrictions:
    • Traffic signals will be switched off at both the Mitchell Freeway northbound and southbound intersections with Karrinyup Road meaning Karrinyup Road will operate under free flow traffic conditions with a single lane in each direction (east/west).
    • The Mitchell Freeway southbound on-ramp will be closed to eastbound traffic along Karrinyup Road. Westbound traffic toward Mitchell Freeway southbound may be intermittently disrupted.
    • The Mitchell Freeway northbound off-ramp will become left-turn only.
    • The Mitchell Freeway northbound on-ramp will be closed to the westbound traffic along Karrinyup Road, eastbound traffic will still be permitted.
    • PSP users (on the west side of the Mitchell Freeway) will be detoured to the protected signalised crossing at North Beach Road (about 640 metres total detour length).
