The project involves constructing a grade-separated interchange, with Joondalup Drive passing over Wanneroo Road with two lanes in each direction.

Western Australian Minister for Transport Rita Saffioti said BMD Constructions, CPB Contractors, Cut and Fill and Georgiou Group had been invited to submit a proposal to design and build the project following a six-week expression of interest period.

“Reducing congestion in Perth’s northern suburbs is a key objective of the $2.3 billion road and rail infrastructure package, jointly funded by the Australian and Western Australian governments,” Ms. Saffioti said.

“This project builds upon the successful opening of the Mitchell Freeway extension between Burns Beach Road and Hester Avenue in August 2017.”

The Federal Government has committed $40 million to the project, with the Western Australian Government committing the remaining $10 million.

According to the state government, a contract award is anticipated in May 2018 with construction beginning mid‑2018.
