Armadale Road Roadworks Update

March 11, 2020

We’re excited that the roadworks for the widening of Armadale Road to a four lane dual carriageway has been completed.

Construction on the $145 million upgrade began in March 2018 and the new lanes opened to traffic in February 2020. The project involved a 6.9km stretch of Armadale Road between Tapper Rd and Anstey Rd.  It involved:

  • Construction of a four-lane dual carriageway, with dedicated turning lanes, intersection improvements and new shared path facilities.
  • New roundabouts at Liddelow Road and Taylor Road/ Wright Road intersections.
  • Rossiter Avenue converted to a left in left out only intersection.
  • An upgrade of Nicholson Road intersection to a bridge over a roundabout.
  • Minor upgrades at Ghostgum Avenue.

Armadale Rd to North Lake Rd Bridge Roadworks

In late 2019, construction began to build a new bridge over Kwinana Freeway, providing a direct link between North Lake Road and Armadale Road.  This $237 million project is due for completion in late 2021 and will.

  • Ease congestion at Cockburn Central Station and Cockburn Gateway Shopping Centre.
  • Improve access to Kwinana Freeway from Armadale Rd.

What’s Happening

Outside of the bridge, the project also involves:

  • Construction of free flowing lanes on Armadale Road through Solomon Road and Tapper Road intersections, with  roundabouts.
  • North-facing on and off ramps at Kwinana Freeway.
  • Collector-distributor roads on both sides of the Kwinana Freeway from Berrigan Drive to Armadale Road.
  • Modifications to the existing North Lake Road and Midgegooroo Avenue intersection.

​​Armadale Rd Roadworks

  • Access to the business precinct, via the former Puma petrol station site on Solomon Road, permanently closed in November 2019.
  • Sections of the Cockburn Central Train Station car park are temporarily closed. Replacement car parking bays are accessible from Knock Place with signage in place to direct car park users.
  • The pedestrian and cyclist path between Freshwater Drive and Tapper Road is closed until May 2020. Path detours are in place.
