Detour options

  • Joondalup Drive and Burns Beach Road Roundabout to reopen

    After a series of modifications, all turning movements and access to and from Burns Beach Road will be available at the roundabout from 5am on Saturday 24 October. Joondalup Drive southbound will remain a single lane whilst finishing works continue for the last remaining stage.

    Some intermittent lane closures in November and December will be required at the roundabout to complete verge works and landscaping. The upgraded Joondalup Drive/ Burns Beach Road intersection is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.

    When using the modified roundabout, we ask road users to drive with care, follow the signage provided and give way to traffic to the right.

  • Scheduled out of hours works

    Out of hours works are scheduled at the Joondalup Drive and Wanneroo Road intersection, and at the Joondalup Drive and Burns Beach Road intersection throughout October, November and into December.

    Out of hours works will be required to reduce major disruptions to daytime traffic and to minimise safety risks to our workforce.

    Works will be taking place across the project area between:

    • Monday to Friday – 7pm to 7am
    • Saturday and Sunday – 7am to 7pm
    • Saturday and Sunday – 7pm to 7am

    Work and vehicle movements throughout the area may be noticeable to nearby residents, however every effort is made to reduce construction noise and vibration where possible.
