The Stephenson Avenue extension will provide a new link between Scarborough Beach Road and Mitchell Freeway, joining the existing Stephenson Avenue from Jon Sanders Drive and Scarborough Beach Road to the State’s freeway network.

Phase one of the project is currently being delivered by the City of Stirling and will include construction of a new road from Scarborough Beach Road to Sarich Court with connections to Ellen Stirling Boulevard at Howe and Oswald Streets. Completion of this phase is anticipated in September 2021.

Phase two will be delivered by Main Roads WA and extend Stephenson Avenue from Sarich Court to Mitchell Freeway and Cedric Street. The contract for this phase will be awarded mid-2021 with completion scheduled for late 2023.

Main Roads WA will also deliver the Stirling Bus Interchange upgrade on behalf of the Public Transport Authority as part of phase two. The upgrade consists of increasing the capacity from an 18-stand bus station to a modern 30-stand bus interchange along with the construction of a new pedestrian access between Stirling Station and the southern car park.
