Joondalup Drive Path Diversion (Drovers Place, Wanneroo to St Stephens Crescent, Tapping)

28 November 2018 to March 2020

The paths along Joondalup Drive, Wanneroo will be closed from west of Wanneroo Road to St Stephens Crescent. Pedestrians and cyclists are advised to divert via Clarkson Avenue and St Stephens Crescent using the footpath. Other streets in this area will be open, however, they do not incorporate off-road footpaths.

By the end of January 2019, works will be well underway on the Wanneroo Road and Joondalup Drive Interchange project. Early works which involved the location of services are nearly complete, and fences and temporary pedestrian paths have started to be installed around the work area. Before the fences and barriers are installed, some paths will need to be diverted. The map below shows the existing, new and closed paths.


Barriers around Burns Beach Road will be installed 20 December 2018 which will close the shoulder from the roundabout on Burns Beach Road and along Joondalup Drive to the east side of Wanneroo Road intersection (travelling in both directions).

The Wanneroo Road and Joondalup Drive Interchange project is funded by the Commonwealth and State Governments as part of a $2.3 billion investment in road and rail infrastructure, announced by Premier Mark McGowan on 7 May 2017.

The project is a future-focused solution to support current and projected levels of traffic resulting from residential and industrial development in Perth’s northern suburbs. The upgrade will remove bottlenecks and reduce travel times on:

  • Wanneroo Road – currently used as an alternate route to the Mitchell Freeway; and
  • Joondalup Drive – a significant east-west access corridor between Mitchell Freeway, Joondalup City Centre and the expanding residential communities to the east of Wanneroo Road.
