Anketell Road will be upgraded to support a new, modern and uninterrupted freight route from the future port to be built within the Kwinana Industrial Area.

Once completed, a new freight corridor will connect the Port with Muchea in the north, and the South-West via Anketell Road, Thomas Road and Tonkin Highway.


  • Allows trucks to travel at consistent speeds without the need for braking, improving efficiency
  • Improves safety with much less interaction between cars and trucks compared with the current freight route
  • Creates reliable transport times and a decrease in supply chain costs
  • Alleviates noise concerns for residents along the current Fremantle freight route
