The Thomas Road and Nicholson Road intersection in Oakford is recognised as one of the most dangerous in Perth, with growth in the area further increasing the risk of serious traffic incidents.

The project will include the installation of a two lane roundabout, shoulder widening and resurfacing to improve traffic flow for the growing community, reduce congestion and minimise the risk of accidents occurring.


  • Significantly improved road safety
  • Reduced congestion and improved freight efficiency
  • Ensure forecast population-driven increases in travel demands are met
