Kwinana Freeway Principal Shared Path Diversion (Phase 5 – Aubin Grove Station to Hope Road, North Lake) – Late June 2019 to December 2019.
Phase 5 of the Kwinana Principal Shared Path detours between Aubin Grove Station to Hope Road, North Lake, will incorporate and replace the Phase 4 detours starting late-June.
BMD Constructions and the Metropolitan Road Improvement Alliance (MRIA), on behalf of Main Roads WA, are widening the Kwinana Freeway between Russell Road and Farrington Road, North Lake, providing an extra northbound lane over 8km, noise walls and widening and upgrades to Principal Shared Paths (PSP) along the western side of this section of Freeway.
The fifth phase of PSP detours modifies the southern detour from Kentucky Court, where cyclists will travel on a temporary PSP to a new exit at Muriel Court. The modified detour will continue to Semple Court where it will connect to the existing detour.
Weather permitting, in July, the southern detour will be shortened, with the new PSP opening between Sweetwater Bend and Reeves Entrance.
The construction team have encountered several challenges that have delayed the opening of sections of the upgraded PSP. The team remain committed, however, to opening upgraded sections at the earliest opportunity.
The PSP access points are also changing. Additional information can be found on the project webpage. https://project.mainroads.wa.gov.au/home/Documents/Access%20Points%20V2%20FINAL%20.pdf
As part of this project, The PSP will be widened to 4m and will be built slightly west of where it currently sits, to the edge of the road reserve and the neighbouring properties. A new underpass has already been completed between Dowell Place and Farrington Road, the goes under the Murdoch Drive Connection. Slightly north of Cockburn Train Station, the PSP will divert via Kentucky Court and North Lake Road. This will allow for the future construction of the Armadale Road to North Lake Road Bridge project. Along the route, some non-compliant access ways will be closed and others upgraded.
