A grade separation intersection has been constructed and sees Joondalup Drive built over Wanneroo Road with two lanes in each direction.

Three local intersection upgrades were added to the scope of the interchange project in response to community feedback and included:

  • a new roundabout at Joondalup Drive and Cheriton Drive which has improved local traffic flow and access to the suburb of Carramar,
  • a fully signalised intersection at Wanneroo Road and Clarkson Avenue which is providing more efficient access to the suburb of Tapping and will ultimately deliver safe and reliable access to the Drovers Business Precinct, and;
  • modifications to the Burns Beach Road and Joondalup Drive Roundabout which is improving and reducing queuing times at a congested location on the approach to Mitchell Freeway.

The path network was also upgraded as part of the overall project and connects to the existing paths on Wanneroo Road and Joondalup Drive.

Significant congestion reductions are already being experienced with more reliable travel times for local business and community.


  • Improved connectivity for local businesses and the community
  • Support economic activity through provision of a more efficient road network
  • Reduction in travel times
