This project involves upgrading the Great Eastern Highway Bypass in Hazelmere, including the construction of new interchanges at Roe Highway and Abernethy Road.

A new grade separated interchange will replace one of the last remaining signalised intersections on Roe Highway to provide free flowing access between both roads.

Abernethy Road will be elevated to pass over the Bypass, with connectivity retained via a new grade separated interchange. Completion of the new interchange will allow removal of the signalised intersection of Stirling Crescent and the Bypass.

A new Principal Shared Path (PSP) will also be built along Roe Highway and Great Eastern Highway Bypass, completing the missing link in the 30 kilometre path between Midland and Jandakot.
